Skyway 2017

The Tampa Museum of Artthe Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art collaborated on Skyway: A Contemporary Collaboration, the first joint exhibition celebrating the artistic practices in the Tampa Bay region, in the summer of 2017. Skyway featured the work of selected artists from the four counties served by the respective museums: Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, and Sarasota. Selected artists were featured across the three venues and highlighted the innovative art created in the Central Florida region. A call for artists occurred in fall 2016, and the submissions were juried by representatives from each of the museums, plus a guest juror. The three participating institutions co-published a fully illustrated catalogue, featuring the work of each exhibiting artist, to accompany the exhibition.
