Selby Galleries I & II: Performance of the Visual: The Return of Frank Rampolla

This exhibition features selected work from Frank Rampolla (1931-1971), a renowned teacher at Ringling College in the ‘60s that explores the beauty and tragedy of the human condition.

Although Frank Rampolla passed away at the young age of 40, his legacy as an artist and teacher lives on in his work and work of the students he influenced. Working mostly figuratively, Rampolla produced prolifically, as he knew his life would be short. His powerful images reflect the social and political turbulence of his times as well as the drama of the Catholic liturgy. 

Rampolla was born in New York City of Italian immigrant parents. After completing studies at The Art Students League of New York, The Cooper Union and Boston University, he began teaching at Ringling College of Art and Design in 1960. In 1968 he moved to the University of South Florida in Tampa where he taught until his death. His work is in the collections of The Ringling Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Library of Congress, The Mint Museum, The National Gallery of Art, and The Smithsonian American Art Museum, to mention a few.

“To give dignity without pomp, to lend significance without anecdote – in short, to become a performance of the visual is the objective. “ 

Frank Rampolla, September, 1965
