This summer, Tampa’s best free museum, the USF Contemporary Art Museum, hosts two exhibitions worth more than the price of admission at most local institutions. The first showcases the nationally acclaimed sculptor’s parallels between Richard Beckman's concepts and materials — dualities ever present in his geometric and organic forms. The late artist and professor's pieces work together to create unique relationships and dialogues between the forms as bodies. Beckman, an associate art professor and well-known Tampa music scene supporter, was 47 when he died on Christmas Day 2004 of an apparent suicide, leaving many shocked and bereft. Celebrate the closing of the exhibition this Friday at a public dedication. 11 a.m. outside the museum, and at a closing reception at the museum 7-9 p.m.
