'Taking Pictures: Women of Independent Spirit'
at the Tampa Museum of Art
Nestled within the elegant cube of the Tampa Museum of Art, the "Taking Pictures: Women of Independent Spirit" exhibition is a compelling testament to women's evolution over a century. Curated from the Peter J. Cohen collection, this intimate journey through vernacular photography uncovers everyday life's raw beauty and profound charm (Cutshaw, 2019).
This breathtaking exhibit showcases an array of themes, each meticulously arranged to guide visitors through a visual timeline from the 1890s to the 1990s.
