Press release from Tampa Bay Lightning!

CALL FOR ARTISTS! The Tampa Bay Times Forum and the Tampa Bay Lightning are excited to announce the re-launch of our 2nd Annual Open Call to Artists!

With over 400 submissions in our inaugural Open Call last summer, we are thrilled to have showcased 41 gifted artists from around the Tampa Bay area this past year at the Forum. As their exhibit comes to a close, we are reopening the submission process and inviting all emerging and established local artists to submit pieces of original artwork to be hung for display at the Times Forum during the 2013-2014 season.

Please visit to find information about the exhibition rules, jury, size requirements, and other important information. In addition to submitting your own work, we ask that you please distribute this information to the many talented artists and supporters in your networks.

The exhibit’s goal is to display images that celebrate the greater Tampa Bay community. A panel composed of local art community leaders from Tampa Bay area museums will select 41 pieces to be displayed in the Times Forum, on the interior walls of the Suite Level. The top three ranked artwork pieces as scored by the judges will receive cash prizes of $1,500, $1,000 and $500. Honorable mentions ranked in the top-10 will also receive $250 each. All artists will be invited to a reception this Fall at the unveiling of the artwork pieces. Please note the submission deadline of August 21, 2013. Artists will be notified by September 20, 2013 if accepted into the exhibition.
