James rosenquist: Tampa

November 13 – December 9, 2017
USF Contemporary Art Museum


Renowned Pop artist James Rosenquist, who passed away earlier this year, lived and worked in the Tampa Bay area for more than four decades. Throughout his life Rosenquist maintained a very active and generous profile within the creative community of Florida’s west coast. From November 13th through December 9th, 2017, the USF Contemporary Art Museum will celebrate this creative and collaborative legacy with the exhibition James Rosenquist: Tampa. Drawn primarily from the collection at USF, the exhibition will feature editions of Rosenquist prints produced at USF's print atelier Graphicstudio. Additionally, the exhibition will include works from private collections, drawings and support materials, and prints produced at three Tampa Bay area ateliers: Flatstone Studio, Pyramid Arts, Ltd. and Topaz Editions. James Rosenquist: Tampa is curated by Peter Foe; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum.

Artist James Rosenquist put Tampa on the map.
