Proposed American Craftsman museum in Tampa | News
TAMPA, Florida (AP) - A Florida foundation has proposed building a $31 million American Craftsman Museum in downtown Tampa.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that the proposal released Friday shows the Two Red Roses Foundation would need public support of $1 million a year for five years.
The museum would house an extensive collection of decorative objects from the 1900 to 1920 American Arts and Crafts movement owned by the foundation's founder Rudy Ciccarello.
The museum would be designed by Ybor City-based Alfonso Architects, which designed the Chihuly Collection at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg and the former Tampa Museum of Art.
The city issued a request for proposals for the museum and restaurant in August, and Two Red Roses was the only bidder.
