Juicy Fruit: Contemporary Citrus Imagery by Florida Artists


Contemporary Florida artists use the image of citrus fruit in their work in either symbolic, representational or aesthetic ways. Visitors to the exhibition at the Tampa Museum of Art will not only become more aware of the impact these crops have had on many aspects of life in Florida, but also the role citrus has played in recent art trends.

The exhibition will be on display through August 1, 1999. The Juicy Fruit exhibition is sponsored by the Jacarlene Foundation. The works included are paintings, works on paper, photography, and ceramics.

Tampa Museum of Art is located at 600 N. Ashley Drive, Tampa. Call the Museum for times, admissions and information about other special exhibitions.
