See America First 

When: Mondays-Fridays. Continues through Feb. 28 2014
Price: Free admission.
Artists Sam Robinson and Jackie Flavio have created interactive mixed media installations that conjure iconic American nature vistas, using wood, plaster, chicken wire, and other materials. Their painted backdrops, three-dimensional scenery and thematic props invite revisits to four locales: a Yosemite campsite, a scenic lookout point over volcanic Hawaii, a glacial valley on the Alaskan frontier and the edge of the Grand Canyon. Each destination will comprise an amusement park-like area in the foreground, posterized backdrops that reference the persuasive impact of WPA propaganda, and a selection of props to "outfit" patrons for the experiences of wilderness. Overall, the show gives a unique historic and cultural perspective of America's romanticized need to escape the daily grind. The closing reception will be from 7 to 9 p.m. on Fri., Feb. 28. The Centre Gallery is located on the second floor of the Marshall Student Center in room 2700, at 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
