Florida author/photographer Gary Monroe has written a lot of great books about art made in the Sunshine State over the years, so it’s not terribly surprising that he’s amassed a sizable collection of Florida art along the way. Not surprising, but definitely exciting. Especially considering that a good chunk of his collection is on display at the Tampa Museum of Art starting this November.
“An Irresistible Urge to Create: Florida Outsider Art from the Monroe Family Collection.” Nov. 4, 2021-May 22, 2022. Tampa Museum of Art, 120 W Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa. tampamuseum.org
