The results are in. With an estimated 33,000 museums in the nation, only 1,070 achieve accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums, the highest recognition a museum can receive—and the Tampa Museum of Art is one of them.

Originally accredited in 1989, the Tampa Museum of Art underwent a reaccreditation review and proved itself committed to quality, accountability, and high professional standards (which, based on its award-winning building, innovative programs, and awe-inspiring exhibitions, is no surprise).

According to a press release, the museum’s Executive Director Michael Tomer said, “Accreditation is a testament to the commitment that exists throughout the entire organization—trustees, foundation board of directors, employees and volunteers.”

Current exhibitions at the Tampa Museum of Art include Tableau and the Transformation: Photography from the Permanent Collection, Abstract Expressionism: A Social Revolution Selections from the Haskell Collection, and Echoing Farms: American Abstraction from the Permanent Collection.
