I grew up in Tampa Florida. It was a mix of many ethnicities, including white folk (the term "crackers" comes from people who's ancestors worked driving cattle and cracked whips) Cubans (people who moved there to make cigars in Ybor City and people displaced during the revolution).
We went to Ybor city a lot, to eat at the Columbia restaurant. Then as a young adult, I went to party with other artists who took up residence there before it became chichi. I went often to grab a Cuban sandwich, cafe con leche, baguette of cuban bread, or bowl of black beans.

The have a form of carnival
there were interactive touch screens to see it all
I enjoyed the wall of posters as well as fine art being made all over the country
a poster... isn't the graphic cool? Love the mouth and the words in white
Hope you enjoyed the little tour...support local museums!
We also loved going through the mind bender exhibit one more time, and I noticed this for sale...
