Last days to see American art exhibit at Tampa Museum of Art

The last day for one of the best art shows of the season is Sunday, so visit or revisit "To See as Artists See: American Art from the Phillips Collection" at the Tampa Museum of Art, 120 Gasparilla Plaza, before it closes.

The 107 paintings are a survey of American art from the 1850s through the 1960s by some of the most important names in the genre, among them Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, Childe Hassam, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper, Grandma Moses, Jacob Lawrence, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.

Also, the Tampa Museum of Art has announced its lineup of spring-summer exhibitions, which continue the museum's mission of exploring the art of our time. These shows also have an emphasis on Hispanic art. Both open May 11 and continue through Sept. 15. They are:

Faded Elegance: Photographs of Havana by Michael Eastman: Eastman chronicles the architecture and interiors on the Cuban capital in nondigital large-scale photographs. This is the first show to present a comprehensive collection of the Havana series, taken between 1999 and 2010.

Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art, Works from the Bank of America Collection: About 100 paintings, prints and photographs created during eight decades by artists such as Mexicans Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo and Gabriel Orozco and Mexican-Americans Judithe Hernandez, Roberto Juarez and Robert Graham explore the social and cultural dynamics of Mexico after the revolution to the present day.
