Dear Friends,

The safety and well-being of the USF Contemporary Art Museum’s student and community visitors and staff are our highest priority. The university has directed that events scheduled over the next month be canceled as USF works to maintain the health and wellness of our community. Therefore, we will not be hosting the opening reception on April 3 nor the artist conversation on April 16 for Battin’ A Hundred: 2020 MFA Graduation Exhibition. At this time, we do not know the extent to which the MFA exhibition will be available to be viewed by the public. As information regarding our events and programs becomes available we will communicate it to you as quickly as we can.

Please visit for University of South Florida closures, policies, and directives that may impact the museum.

Thank you,
Margaret A. Miller
Director, USF Institute for Research in Art
