Featured exhibition — Skyway 20/21
Skyway 20/21 is the second iteration of an exhibition celebrating the diversity of artistic talent in the Tampa Bay area. It is also an exercise in collaboration, as it is shared among four institutions: Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Tampa Museum of Art, and University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum. That sense of collaboration was put to the test as Skyway 2020 was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, opening as Skyway 20/21 now, a year later.
Curators from each institution selected 49 artists from across Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, and Sarasota Counties. After numerous studio visits conducted in 2019, the MFA chose works by 15 artists that address the natural environment — one of the most pressing issues of our time. Join us for a special tour of the exhibition, which showcases the beauty of the state, but also examines the natural and man-made threats to it.

As the first curator at the MFA to focus on Modern and Contemporary art, Katherine Pill has worked to bring new ideas to diverse audiences. Currently, she is a member of the curatorial team behind the second iteration of the four-venue exhibition featuring regional artists, Skyway 20/21: A Contemporary Collaboration.
