I was blown away by this place, easily spent more than an hour there. Learning the history & backgrounds of these two artists was special, interesting for an art history interested person. The traveling/special exhibits have been interesting, high level art. Perfect for educated, elitist people, haha but - seriously surprisingly good museum. Not everyone would appreciate. A gem in the town, on the campus of St Petersburg College's Tarpon Springs campus. I will return regularly, and will recommend to friends.

This museum was established with donations of works by artists Abraham Rattner, Esther Gentle and Allen Leepa. It also has temporary exhibits (most recent of works by Louise Chase) and a permanent collection. Well worth a visit to learn more about Rattner, who had a career spanning Paris, New York, and DC, and whose close friends and collaborators include Henry Miller.

We made the trip from the Orlando area specifically for this museum. Very nice building with an excellent collection. It's on the campus of St Petersburg College and is easy to find. Our visit was the Sunday after Thanksgiving so the campus was empty. The docent, Nancy, led an informative and enthusiastic tour. Highly recommend!!

The Leepa Rattner Museum is located in Tarpon Springs, off the beaten path on St Pete Campus. It is over 50,000 sq ft of wonderful art works by Rattner and Leepa with works from Picasso and Chigal sprinkled in. The current special exhibit is the art and life of Martin Balin, the fouonder of Jefferson Airplane and a key player in developing the songs of the 60s and the music festival culture of the day. He was a great musician and also a very accomplished artist. If you are baby boomer, you will enjoy the exhibit. Rattner's work is also unique and very moving. He straddled the line between cliassical and modern art. This museum is excellent in that you can easily spend a few hours there without realizing it.

Off the beaten track, the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art on the St. Pete College campus in Clearwater is definitely worth a visit. First of all, they offer free admission to holders of certain area museum membership cards (e.g. St. Pete's Museum of Fine Arts). In addition to the permanent collection of striking art-works (it was the first time that I saw a reproduction of Picasso's Guernica in situ!), there is always a special exhibition in a side gallery. The staff are helpful and welcoming! Perfect respite on a hot summer's day in Florida.
