The Tampa Museum of Art opened its doors on February 6, 2010. Among its inaugural exhibitions (which number five) is Taking Shape: Works from the Bank of America Collection. Through sculpture, the exhibition explores the meaning of representation as challenged by a selection of five artists working in the 1960s and 1970s. Among them was Frank Stella (whose Damascus Gate II, 1968, is above) indicates the primary question of the collected material – how to reconcile the painted two-dimensional with three-dimensional space.

Another exhibition of note brings 170 works to celebrate the achievement of Henri Matisse. Titled A Celebration of Henri Matisse, Master of Line and Light, emphasis is placed on the roll of print in the artist’s career.
