Our First Director’s Circle Event at the Vault

Margaret Miller delivers her Contemporary Art “Boot Camp” address, part of the 2012-2013 Director’s Circle event series.
The Director’s Circle event series benefits the USF Contemporary Art Museum.

Last night at the Vault in downtown Tampa, we held our first Director’s Circle event. Margaret Miller held the audience captive with her “boot camp” crash lesson on the latest in contemporary art. Margaret discussed artists who will be working – or have recently worked – in residence here at Graphicstudio, and others who will be part of upcoming exhibitions at USF Contemporary Art Museum (USFCAM). A good time was had by all, and we hope this group of actively interested folks will continue to be a part of this vibrant art community.

What is the Director’s Circle?
The Director’s Circle is our primary fund raising effort for USFCAM. Those who belong to the Director’s Circle are part of an exclusive group of art enthusiasts who provide support for exhibitions at USFCAM throughout the year. All Director’s Circle members are VIPs and are invited to special events throughout the year. As a bonus, this year we have added a new tier which includes the opportunity to rent the USFCAM gallery for an event with up to 50 people. Those at this higher level will also receive VIP passes to Art Basel Miami Beach which is good for two guests!
