The USF Contemporary Art Museum opened its current facility next to the USF College of the Arts in 1989. The museum has presented exhibitions of contemporary art from Florida, the United States and around the world, including Africa, Europe, and Latin America. Changing exhibitions are designed to introduce students, faculty and the community to current cultural trends.
