BEST INCUBATOR OF UP-AND-COMING ARTISTS: USF Contemporary Arts Museum

USFCAM manages to stay impressively ahead of the curve in charting current trends in the visual arts, hosting shows by such of-the-moment artists as Trenton Doyle Hancock. But it’s CAM’s affiliation with USF that keeps it on the cutting edge. The annual shows by graduating Masters of Fine Arts students are possibly the most anticipated of the year, allowing visitors to view works that these students have been developing for years. 3821 USF Holly Drive, Tampa, 813-974-4133, www. arts.usf.edu.
