Graphicstudio? Like this, but edgier.

In 1968, Graphicstudio got its start at USF Tampa. What do they do? They're an "experiment in art and education" according to their website, and they're not wrong.

50 years later, the purveyor of fine art is still going strong — and they want to celebrate with you. Yes, you. Head to Tampa Theatre for a party.

Should you go? It's pretty simple, really: Do you like fine art? Do you feel like partying? If the answers are yes, go ahead and join them at this historic movie palace and raise a glass (or several) to this institution of finer art (and artistic learning). Director Margaret Miller will be there, as will former directors, including Donald Saff, Alan Eaker and Hank Hine. Together, they'll take a retrospective walk through their past projects — and take a look forward.
