Torso of Aphrodite/Venus
Torso of Aphrodite/Venus, Roman, 1st century AD, marble, 46 in. high

The Tampa Museum of Art houses one of the largest Greek and Roman antiquities collections in the southeastern U.S., so it makes sense for it to celebrate the centenary of American women’s right to vote — and of its own founding — with the exhibition “HerStory: Stories of Ancient Heroines and Everyday Women.”

On view through January 9, 2022 are works from the collection that highlight goddesses and mythological characters including Aphrodite, Athena, and the Amazons, as well as women whose names have been forgotten.
