The Man, The Image, and The World: Henri Cartier-Bresson, a Retrospective @ Tampa Museum of Art - I've been to this show once, and intend to go back soon and review it. There is so much in this exhibit to take in that I suggest a break at the Sono cafe before returning to the fray. Cartier-Bresson's style influenced journalism and street photography to this day. A great exhibit. All at TMA, 120 W. Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa. Admission is $10 for non members. On your way to or from TMA stop on Zack and check out Susan Gott's cast glass panels. Think of it as dessert.

  1. Cityscape seems a good subject for murals. But many themes can of course be painted there, for decoration and as a break and escape from looking at cement. This painting by American painter Charles Sheeler,, would make a good mural as it is as a good painting. The image can be seen as who supplies canvas prints from original art.
