Museum of art lights up downtown Tampa
TAMPA -- The $32.8 million Tampa Museum of Art, which opened to the public Feb. 6, rises on the historic banks of the Hillsborough River across from a Moorish, late-19th century, minaret-topped University of Tampa building that once served as headquarters for officers waiting to be deployed to the Spanish American war in Cuba. Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders passed through here.
