TAMPA, FL.- Saluting the 150th anniversary of the noted educational institution, the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts presents an exhibition from Vassar College.

Founded in 1861, Vassar was famous as a pioneering women’s college before it went coeducational in 1969. It was the first college or university in the United States to have a museum as part of its original plan. Today Vassar’s Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center has 18,000 works in its collection - nearly 3,000 of which are photographs.

The exhibition, which runs through January 29, 2011, features work by the major photographers the twentieth century including Berenice Abbott, Diane Arbus, Harry Callahan, Walker Evans, Andreas Feininger, Lee Friedlander, Lewis Hine, Frank Paulin, and Weegee as well as more contemporary photographers such as Bruce Davidson, Rineke Dijkstra, Nan Goldin, Philip Lorca diCorcia, and Andy Warhol.

Titled after the acclaimed 1945 book of photographs by Weegee, the exhibition includes photographs of cities as varied as New York, Chicago, and New Orleans.

It is divided into three categories: City Dwellers, City Streets, and Cityscapes. Themes of the exhibition include architecture, alienation, personalities, everyday life, street scenes, family, poverty, and progress. The exhibition was curated by Mary-Kay Lombino, the Emily Hargroves Fisher '57 and Richard B. Fisher curator and Assistant Director for Strategic Planning, The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College. The exhibition is sponsored by Lissa and Charles Lyman and Ferman Motor Cars.
