Tampa Arts and Culture Oral History Project

Browse collection

This collection of interviews chronicles the evolution and development of arts and culture in the Tampa Bay area. Beginning in 2006 and on behalf of the USF Libraries Oral History Program, independent oral historian Suzette Berkman conducted interviews about Tampa's arts and culture and the local institutions that support them, including the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Florida Orchestra. Leaders and founders of arts and culture in Tampa share their insights and experiences about historical developments, trends, and issues that enhance the community.
