Antiquities Circle Lecture: How a Roman buys his casket

April 25, 2017

6:30p reception, 7:00p lecture, followed by Q&A in gallery

Lecture free for members and students; not-yet-members $5 for lecture and gallery access. RSVP requested to Michele.Laws@TampaMuseum.org or 813.421.6631.

The lion sarcophagus on view in Tampa poses many intriguing questions for modern viewers. Was this large marble casket produced for a specific client, or prepared for an assumed market? Where did the marble come from, how was it transported, and how was it carved? Was its decoration distinctive or conventional? What did the lion hunt mean in the context of one’s tomb? And what – if anything – does its imagery tell us about the Romans’ thoughts about death and what followed? Such questions help us to understand this ancient work of sculpture, and allow us to engage with the mentality and mores of antiquity.

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.

CITY Art-a-Portér: Susanne Bartsch

September 9, 2017

About Susanne Bartsch

The Tampa Museum of Art is proud to present “the queen of New York City nightlife” Susanne Bartsch as the subject of this year’s CITY. Bartsch has been a pioneer on the NYC fashion, art and underground club scene since the 1980s, serving as a friend and muse to legions of game-changing fashion designers such as John Galliano, Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

A Kickstarter-funded documentary about her life, @Bartschland, will debut at the Toronto Film Festival this year, “an investigation, the filmmakers say, into her eccentric life, her inclusive ethos, and the constellation of people she’s inspired.” (vogue.com)

In 2015, the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) mounted Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch, a retrospective of her 30-year career and the designer ensembles inspired by her creativity and the culture she promotes.

Leading up to the CITY event, the Tampa Museum of Art will feature its own exhibition of approximately 35 designer looks, from both FIT’s retrospective and Bartsch’s personal collection, opening July 28, 2017.

“I think it’s important that we have changes, and it would be a disaster if we didn’t. I am constantly changing myself, and I don’t like the idea of standing still or looking back.” - Susanne Bartsch

About CITY 2017

In 2017, CITY will be a “fashion event” in performance art style, a departure from a typical runway show, with Susanne Bartsch at the epicenter. Interactive vignettes – each created and styled by a different designer – will feature new looks inspired by Bartsch’s eccentric, avant-garde style and her impact on club kid culture, past and present.
