Film Screening: The Proposal @ Tampa Theatre

Come join the Tampa Bay Foundation of Architecture & Design, in partnership with Tampa Theatre and AIA Tampa Bay, for an evening of networking, artistic inspiration, and a special screening of The Proposal, Jill Magid’s enthralling documentary about Luis Barragán: the architect who became a diamond. This event is sponsored by Florida Business Interiors

Known as “the artist among architects,” Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his work was locked away in a Swiss bunker, hidden from the world’s view. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, boundary redefining artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself — a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.
