Description

The Tampa Museum of Art opened its spectacular 66,000-square-foot Cornelia Corbett Center in February 2010 to critical and public acclaim. Since opening in its new home, the museum has emerged as a center of the artistic life in the region. Its commitment to accessibility is evidenced by its operating hours (open every day and into the evenings) and its embrace of public art on its 14,000 sq ft facade. The museum specializes in modern and contemporary art while holding a prized collection of antiquities.

Mission

Mission: The Tampa Museum of Art will gather, study, discuss and present the finest visual arts with and for a curious public. Vision: To create an environment to explore new ideas and innovative experiences.

History

Prior to the museum's opening in 1979, the Tampa Bay Art Center (founded in 1923) and the Tampa Junior Museum (founded in 1958) served the community’s cultural needs. In 1964, the City of Tampa requested that the Arts Council of Tampa/Hillsborough County, in consultation with community arts organizations, develop a plan for a City art museum to be built with funding from a bond issue. The following year, the plan was approved and began to materialize under a newly created private/public partnership with the City of Tampa known as the Tampa Museum Federation. The Federation was the genesis of what is now the Tampa Museum of Art. In 1979, the new art museum opened in downtown Tampa on a riverfront site behind the convention center. In 2010, the museum opened its new home in the award-winning Cornelia Corbett Center in downtown Tampa and serves as the anchor in the redevelopment of the cultural life of Tampa in the 21st century.
