About the Tampa Museum of Art
The Tampa Museum of Art opened its award-winning home in 2010 with a commitment to providing innovative public programs with a strong focus on modern and contemporary art. The Museum balances a growing collection with a dynamic annual schedule of special exhibitions. It is the region’s largest museum devoted to art of our time and has built a reputation for embracing contemporary photography and new media. Leo Villareal’s Sky (Tampa) (the Museum’s 14,000-square-foot LED installation on its façade) has become an iconic image for Tampa. Since its founding in 1979, the Museum has been dedicated to providing quality education to students and adults, with more than half of its programs offered free of charge.

Collection
Sky (Tampa)
: The exterior of the Tampa Museum of Art features programmable LED lights, 45 feet high and 300 feet long, embedded within two-layers of perforated aluminum panels. In daylight, the museum’s façade creates a moiré-like pattern, and in darkness the LED light installation glows with Villarreal’s signature light-coded and hypnotic dance.

Modern & Contemporary Art
The Tampa Museum of Art has a long-standing tradition of collecting in the areas of modern and contemporary art, with a specific focus on photography since the 1980s.

Greek & Roman Antiquities
The first artwork purchased by the Tampa Museum of Art was an ancient Greek vase—an Attic black-figure column krater bought in 1981 —and this has remained an important area of collecting for the Museum ever since. The Museum’s most notable acquisition of antiquities came five years later, in the form of the Joseph Veach Noble Collection, a significant private collection of over 150 objects amassed primarily in the 1950s and ‘60s.
