Kiley Garden 2018 Program

Carmada returns to Tampa’s Kiley Garden for its fifth year Art Car Extravaganza during Gasparilla Festival of the Arts 2017.

See new art cars on display and watch as vehicles are transformed live by local artists!

PLUS enjoy hands-on creative activities for all ages while our DJs spin throughout the afternoon.

What’s an art car? It’s any standard vehicle modified into mobile artwork through application of paint, sculptural embellishment, and other techniques. Visitors to Kiley Garden will be encouraged to vote on their favorite art car, with prizes going to the artists. Don’t miss this free, fun, family-friendly celebration of art on wheels!

Also in Kiley Garden, fifteen Emerging Artist booths, and the NEW Scholastic Showcase.

At street level, adjacent to Kiley Garden, the NOMADstudio Art Bus invites visitors to add to their giant mobile mural.

Carmada, the NOMADstudio Art Bus, and other Kiley Garden programming is made possible in part with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners. Learn how you can help fuel the arts in Hillsborough County by visiting
