Tampa Museum of Art receives $25 million gift for capital campaign

The Tampa Museum of Art has received a $25 million donation from Dick Corbett as the lead donation to the Museum’s Centennial Capital Campaign for Renovation and Expansion, which began during its 100th anniversary celebration in 2020.

“This gift from Dick Corbett makes history in Florida’s art community because it constitutes the single largest private donation ever made to a public art museum and art education center in this state,” said Michael Tomor, the executive director of the Tampa Museum of Art, in a statement.

He added, noting that although there have been other large donations made to museums in Florida, those have been in the form of part cash-part collections of art.

Dick Corbett has developed, financed and constructed more than $1 billion in real estate ventures as chief executive officer and president of Concorde Companies, a Tampa-based real estate investment firm. He developed and attracted funding for Tampa International Plaza and Bay Street shopping center, adjacent to the Tampa International Airport.
