Sometimes you don’t know what gems are in your own backyard. Such is the case with the Ybor studio of the late artist, Theo Wujcik who was an iconic resident and creative influence in Tampa and Ybor City as well as an important American artist of the late 20th Century.
Susan Johnson, Theo’s widow and now the Founder of the Theo Wujcik Legacy Foundation, graciously gave us a first person retrospective of his life and work, opening his studio and sharing personal anecdotes and remembrances. In short, it was an amazing education and inspiring experience. So thank you Susan and thank you Theo.
There is this old saying “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” That’s so true in art as well. So I won’t blabber on about our cool experience and instead let the pictures tell the story. Click here to view the full picture gallery from our adventure in his studio.
