TAMPA, FLA.- The Tampa Museum of Art announced their summer exhibition, Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting, a major show of photorealistic works on view through October 22, 2017.

This exhibition is presented by Bank of America and is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, the Arts Council of Hillsborough and Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting traces the evolution of Photorealism from 1960 to today. The exhibition presents the work of some 30 artists known for their hyperrealistic depictions of ordinary objects and scenes of everyday life such as American diners, chrome features on cars and motorcycles, as well as meticulous portraits. Art dealer and author Louis K. Meisel coined the term “photorealism” in the late 1960s to describe large-scale paintings created to look photographic. Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting features three generations of photorealist painters, including John Baeder, Robert Bechtle, Chuck Close, Richard Estes, Audry Flack, Ralph Goings, Yigal Ozeri, Raphaella Spence, and others. The Tampa Museum of Art is the only American venue on the international tour of Photorealism: 50 years of Hyperrealistic Painting, organized by the Institut für Kulturaustausch in Tübingen, Germany. Ralph Goings’s painting Collins Diner, from the Tampa Museum of Art permanent collection, is among the most important artworks in the exhibition.

The Tampa Museum of Art opened its award-winning new home in 2010 with a commitment to providing innovative public programs with a strong focus on classical, modern, and contemporary art. The Museum balances a growing collection, including one of the largest Greek and Roman antiquities collections in the southeastern United States, with a dynamic annual schedule of special exhibitions. It is the region’s largest museum devoted to art of our time and has built a reputation for embracing contemporary photography and new media; most notably, Leo Villareal’s Sky (Tampa), the 14,000-square-foot LED installation on the Museum’s south façade, has become an iconic image for Tampa. Since its founding in 1979, the Museum has been dedicated to providing quality education to students and adults, with more than half of its programs offered free of charge. The Museum is home to Sono Café, a Slow Food movement café overlooking the Hillsborough River, and has emerged as Tampa’s premier venue for special events.
