In the Pink: An Exploration of Color in Art

September 14, 2002 – February 2, 2003

Ledger and Murray Galleries

What color seems more stereotypically Florida than pink? In the Pink: Explorations of Color in Art opens September 13 with no flamingos in view. Though the Museum certainly has no goal to collect pink artworks, it has throughout the years acquired a fascinating collection of artworks that feature the color pink, in all of its subtle shades. Taking that as its cue, the Curatorial Department has selected many of these works for an exhibition that discusses the different uses in art of this hot color. The works in this exhibition range from a terrazzo sculpture by Tampa artist Richard Beckman to intense prints by Kenny Scharf and Cesar Martinez. Among the other artists included in the exhibition are Larry Bell, Paul Brach, Leonora Carrington, Lise Drost, Bob Kane and William Renc.
