Lawyers for the Arts

April 20, 2017

April 20-21, 2017

The Tampa Museum of Art is proud to present its second Lawyers for the Arts program, an ongoing series of presentations exploring the frequent, fascinating crossover of the art world and the legal world.

William W. “Terry” Fisher III, Wilmer Hale Professor of Intellectual Property Law at Harvard Law School, will discuss his role in litigation between artist Shepard Fairey and the Associated Press surrounding Fairey’s appropriation of an AP-owned image to create the iconic “Hope” Poster in support of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Fisher will review additional cases against artists such as Jeff Koons, Richard Prince and Annie Leibovitz, involving the application of the fair use doctrine to the longstanding artistic tradition of appropriation and how the legal community might handle such cases in the future.

Pride & Passion

April 29, 2017

 Saturday April 29, 2017
8p-12a The Main Event

Presented by

WELLS-RGB-Color

The LGBT community has been synonymous with Arts and Culture in Tampa Bay and around the world. It’s befitting that Pride & Passion, a signature fundraising event for the Tampa Museum of Art, features our community. It’s equally befitting that the money we raise funds programs at the Museum that reduce barriers to admission, create safe places for people to experience the arts, and celebrates our local talent.

The inspiration for Pride & Passion 2017 comes from the circuses, cabarets, and vibrant performance halls frequented by 19th century artists, intellectuals and writers in Paris. With Cirque de Mascarade, the Pride & Passion mantra of “dress to impress” invites guests to add a 19th century bohemian twist to your attire.

 

Main Event Tickets

Main Event Tickets include heavy hors d'oeuvres, open bar, and membership to the Museum.

$100 Advance ticket | $125 At the door ticket (pending availability).
