Call to Artist!

Call to Artist_edited.jpg

Creative Pinellas is excited to manage the Artist Call on behalf of The Tampa Bay Rays for “The Rays Artist Series,” with the goal of selecting six Tampa Bay and surrounding area artists to create a welcoming art gallery experience for fans at Tropicana Field. The Rays Artist Series supports Artists to become part of the Rays artistic family.

Art Goals: This project ensures an inviting first impression for all those traveling to Tropicana Field. Art will be created by Artists living and working in the counties where Rays fans live. The selected artworks will be shown in a gallery space in the main concourse of the ballpark.

Each Artist chosen for this project will create an original work around a sports theme that will be reproduced with the Rays on a large scale (typically 72” x 72”) canvas. The application will list the themes. Past themes have included Jackie Robinson and the Rays; Pride and the Rays; Roberto Clemente and the Rays; and more.

Artists are invited to think of all the creative ways that the themes may be depicted, including artwork that goes beyond depicting players in a literal manner.

After Artists are selected, the Rays will work directly with the Artists to develop their artwork and to ensure it is successfully transferred into the final print version.

CALL TO ARTISTS: Crafting Play

 

Exhibition Dates: May 17–July 6, 2024

Submission Deadline: April 19, 2024

 

VISION: Florida CraftArt is excited to announce an open call for submissions for our upcoming exhibition, Crafting Play. We invite talented artists working in craft mediums or techniques to explore the intersection of craft and games, presenting unique perspectives and artistic expressions inspired by the world of games.

No one can deny the visual appeal of games. Whether it be the engulfing sweep of green offered by a baseball diamond, the graphic simplicity of Go, the folksy charm of carnival games, or the visual feast of intricately crafted Mahjong tiles. Games teach us problem-solving, decision making, cooperation, and social skills.  They have been proven to improve creativity, motivation, and memory. Games are teaching tools, help us build better relationships, and relieve stress. But we have been attracted to games since ancient times because they are fun! Humans began to craft games in the Bronze Age, nearly 7,000 years ago. In those ancient times they were often imbued with mythic and spiritual significance. Since then, they have played an integral part of all cultures, creating a common playing field for our shared human experience.

HEROES-CALL-IMAGE-1.webp

CALL TO ARTISTS: HEROES

Exhibition Dates: July 11–August 24, 2024

Submission Deadline: June 7, 2024

VISION: Calling all talented craft artists! Florida CraftArt is thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for you to showcase your creativity and vision in our upcoming exhibition, HEROES.

Whether you are captivated by legendary figures from mythology, fascinated by everyday heroes in our communities, or inspired by personal tales of resilience and triumph, we invite you to contribute your unique perspective to this dynamic exhibition.

While the traditional image of a hero often involves capes and extraordinary powers, real-life heroes encompass a wide range of individuals who exhibit exceptional courage, resilience, and altruism. There are the classic heroes of mythology, literature, and pop culture, figures like Hercules or Wonder Woman, who symbolize the triumph of good over evil and inspire us to aspire to higher ideals. On a more tangible level, everyday heroes emerge from our communities. Firefighters, police officers, and healthcare workers exemplify the courage to confront danger and protect others. Their commitment to public service highlights the importance of selflessness and empathy, showcasing the heroism that exists within ordinary individuals. Moreover, unsung heroes such as teachers, parents, and community leaders contribute significantly to shaping the future by imparting knowledge, values, and guidance.

Heroes are integral to the human experience as they provide role models, sources of inspiration, and a sense of collective identity. The stories of heroes, whether fictional or real, serve as moral compasses, guiding individuals through challenges and dilemmas. They instill hope and demonstrate that even in the face of adversity, one person’s actions can make a difference. Heroes also contribute to the cultural tapestry of societies, reflecting shared values and aspirations. By celebrating heroism, societies reaffirm the importance of qualities like bravery, compassion, and justice.
