Join us monthly for TMA Unpacked: a Virtual Series. Discover more than a museum each month as our staff members “unpack” what makes the Tampa Museum of Art thrive. In our discussion, we explore and answer your questions about different aspects of museum operations. You will hear from museum staff on various topics related to museum operations, art, fundraising, programming, and more throughout the series.

TMA Unpacked: Curating for the Centennial – On Tuesday, October 27th at 4pm, join us for a 30-minute live webinar and Q&A, with our Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, Joanna Robotham, as she shares the process of organizing exhibitions for our Centennial Year. Joanna will discuss her collection research and how discoveries in art storage informed the 100th anniversary exhibitions. We hope you will join us and share with us your questions.

Register for our Zoom Webinar with Joanna Robotham and submit your question(s) in advance!

We look forward to seeing you there!
