Top things to do in Tampa Bay for Dec. 3

Artist Piotr Janowski works with University of South Florida fine arts student Amra Causevic to apply foil to one of four palms in front of the Museum Of Fine Arts in St Petersburg. Janowski is preparing for his art installation, called "Curiosity" outside of the museum where he will install contemporary sculptures that symbolize ears to a total of eight palm trees around the museum. The installation will open Dec. 3 and will remain until Feb. 14. Janowski gained international media coverage in the summer of 2015 when he created a large-scale installation at his rented home in Tarpon Springs. Janowski wrapped his home, driveway, and palm trees in foil. "My goal is to create awareness about solar energy and I am working now on sculptures that produce solar energy themselves."
