Skyway 20/21: A Contemporary Collaboration, is the second iteration of a joint exhibition across four institutions that highlights contemporary art created in the Central Florida region. Artists selected by a jury are from five counties- Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, and Sarasota. The exhibitions are an excellent sampling of the work being made in the Tampa Bay area.

The works shown in this post are from the exhibition at the The Ringling in Sarasota. I’ve included links for these artists as well as those not pictured.

This work by Barry Graves, located in a parking structure in Gainesville, Florida, and part of a larger group of murals organized by Urban Revitalization Project.

Sadly, Graves passed away last year in March 2020. His legacy lives on though, through BG Art Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. It’s stated mission is to “support addiction recovery with funding for in-patient treatment and by promoting awareness and offering resources for healing”.
