Tampa, Florida: Anti-Gravity Monument Team Field Report

University Drive, Tampa, FL
Drive west on W. Kennedy Blvd across the bridge from downtown, then immediately make a sharp right onto the University of Tampa campus. Drive straight back, past a gaudy building on left. The street gradually bends left. You'll come to a stop sign for a crosswalk and see a sign for the MacDonald-Kelce Library on the right; the monument is across from that, next to the street, on the left end of the crosswalk, at the corner of a gated parking lot, under a tree.
