STUDIO-f began as a way
to introduce international artists to the campus and to give the
community and students the opportunity to meet these artists in a studio
setting. Visiting artists spend two weeks at the studio, working in an
open environment, sometimes with the help of students. The artists also
give a gallery talk that is open to the public. At least one print from
each series is retained for the Fine Art Permanent Collection of The
University of Tampa.
Seed funds for STUDIO-f were provided by
the Board of Fellows, and the program has been supported by donations
and matching grants from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County.
Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 1-4 p.m. Saturday and
closed on National Holidays. There is no charge for admission. For more
