ST. PETERSBURG - The exhibition Robert Rauschenberg and James Rosenquist: Images from Everywhere, Prints and Photographs will open Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, 255 Beach Drive NE.

The exhibition will feature nearly 30 works on paper, including both large-scale works and a number of photographs by Rauschenberg (1925-2008).

The prints and photographs are gifts to the Museum from Donna and Thomas Brumfield Jr. and Iris and E. Stan Salzer. Jennifer Hardin, Hazel and William Hough chief curator, curated the show, based on the 1999 exhibition which premiered these works. This is only the second time they have been shown as a group.

“My images come from everywhere,” Rauschenberg noted in 1983. “I support the post office subscribe to everything. I pick up everything I can get my hands on.” He and Rosenquist have explored and transformed the world around them in their art, creating some of the most compelling work of our time.

PALM HARBOR - The Palm Harbor Museum, in cooperation with the Florida Humanities Council, will host a Smithsonian traveling exhibition beginning Nov. 1.

“The Way We Worked,” which is adapted from an original exhibition developed by the National Archives, explores how work became a central theme in American culture.

Because work has changed dramatically over the last 100 years, its importance is reflected in the fact that we spend so much of our lives on the job. In many ways, the worker is seen as the American hero - the exhibit honors the men and women who have created the country that we have today.

TARPON SPRINGS - It’s never quiet at Replay Amusement Museum. Tucked between buildings in downtown Tarpon Springs, the museum echoes with whirs and dings and clangs.

Songs like Pinball Wizard and Big Girls Don’t Cry are piped in through old-fashioned jukeboxes. And above the almost audible hum of electricity, adults relive their childhoods in the form of arcade games.

On Oct. 3, Brian and Becky Cheaney opened Replay Amusement Museum with their personal collection: hundreds of stand-up arcade games they’d spent a decade accumulating for their own personal use.
