Through the Lens


Through the Lens: The Mahaffey at 50 – A Photographic Celebration of The Arts in St. Petersburg is an historic and entertaining timeline, featuring more than 70 canvas-mounted photographs of the dazzling artists who have performed on our stage over the past five decades.

Sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times, the exhibition of oversized photographs consists of vintage images from the Times archives, dating back to the early 1960s, plus more recent works from The Mahaffey's own photographers. The earliest photo is of classical guitar great Carlos Montoya, taken at what then known as the Bayfront Theater on Oct. 1, 1965. The most recent shows Lyle Lovett and His Acoustic Group onstage in October of 2014.


Through the Lens: The Mahaffey at 50 is on view in The Mahaffey’s second-floor gallery during all publicly ticketed events.
