Tampa Museum of Art at FICS

Due to multiple factors, our November 7th field trip to the Tampa Museum of Art was postponed, but that did not stop them from coming to us!

Dr. Alayne Unterberger, Executive Director
Our #partnership with the Tampa Museum of Art, Inc. is incredibly meaningful to our community. We WERE supposed to have a fieldtrip on Nov 7 but a confluence of factors got it postponed. Therefore, Ms Renée Buono came to US! This was like medicine for their 1st term grading period and #hurricaneseason2022 disappointments. Just look what we accomplished: we turned their frowns upside down! #partner is an active verb in our MISSION and that’s what we do best!
