The Tampa Museum of Art

My last post was on the Dali Museum while I was in Florida during December, a trip I highly doubt I’ll make this year due to COVID. But staying on the topic of museums, another one I managed to visit while in Florida was the Tampa Museum of Art. It’s a small museum along the Tampa Bay Riverwalk with a range of classical to modern art.

During the time of my visit, the museum was celebrating its 100th anniversary with the exhibit “The Making of A Museum”, which showcased 100 works throughout the gallery that were important to the founding and growth of the museum. Here are some of the pieces I saw while there.

 

 

 

How I wish I was able to visit my all-time favorite museum, THE MET. Museums are full of things that bring me peace and happiness: art, history, beauty, and the quietness of it all. Not to mention I would have gone to see the About Time: Fashion and Duration exhibition that was slated to be on display, after having the famous Met Gala. If you want to get an idea of what the exhibition would include I recommend watching the YouTube video they put together. I watched it and thoroughly enjoyed it, although for me there is nothing like being able to see fashion history up close in person. Are you missing museums, or something else in particular at this moment? Let me know in the comments or on social media!-T.S.
