ANDY WARHOL at TMA (opens Saturday)
Andy Warhol’s (1928–1987) work has challenged perceptions of popular culture, politics, and consumerism for more than fifty years. He was the central figure of American pop art, a movement that emerged in the late 1950s in reaction to the heroism of abstract expressionism. Tampa Museum of Art’s new exhibit spans three decades of Warhol’s career, featuring some of the artist’s most iconic screenprints: portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Mao Zedong, the splashy camouflage series, and the controversial Electric Chair portfolio.
GONE FISHIN' (all weekend)
Nothing beats a day on the water with your dad. Tampa Bay’s newest fishing tour company, iTrekkers, can make it happen. Book at trip through them with a vetted, local boat captain who knows where the big ones are biting.
FATHER'S DAY (Sunday)
Dads get in free at some of Tampa Bay’s premier attractions, including The Florida Aquarium and Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, MOSI, the Glazer Children’s Museum.
SING FOR YOUR SUPPER (Sunday)
Also in honor of Father’s Day, the Seminole Hard Rock Café gives all those dads who sing in the shower a chance to strut their stuff on stage from noon to 5 p.m. The prize is a free Legendary Burger. The shy types can still be a winner by taking their families out for brunch at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood. Stick around for the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival later in the day.
The Tampa Theatre has the perfect film for Father’s Day, Harold Ramis's directorial debut, marking its 35th anniversary, pits the caddies against the “establishment” at the hoity-toity Bushwood County Club, with riotous results. Bill Murray is the groundskeeper obsessed with killing the gophers that infest the golf course, Chevy Chase is a wealthy Bushwood member, and Rodney Dangerfield is a brash real estate mogul who couldn't care less about the snobby club’s rules. USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion after the film. The session is free and open to the public.
