ART DISTRICT / TAMPA, FL – The Vault of Souls banner, with the ghostly image of an elegant women, high on the Franklin Exchange building was the image chosen to represent this year’s haunted interactive ghost story inside The Vault, or should we say, in the basement of The Vault.
A long and dark elevator ride takes guests down into the underworld, an 11,000 square foot cavern underneath the 1923 Exchange National Bank building. This deep dark place is known to some as a paranormal purgatory or sorts, where the souls are said to speak and where the haunted performances begin to spark fear in whoever enters.

DOWNTOWN / TAMPA, FL – NOV 9, 2015: Nationally celebrated artists, Leon Ales ‘Bask‘ Hostomsky of St. Petersburg and ‘Tes One‘ Bedore of Tampa, were commissioned by City Hall to paint a whimsical theme called ‘Stay Curious’ on the William F. Poe Parking Garage adjacent to the Museum of Art in downtown Tampa, FL.
The garage needed to painted this year but honorary Mayor Buckhorn had this great idea to spruce it up a bit.
I hadn’t been downtown for a while but I immediately noticed the colorful artwork while crossing over the Cass Street Bridge.
It was a wonderful site. Tes One & Bask had turned a lifeless parking garage into a an extraordinary work of art.
