Activities around my city

Community Event

The Five by Five Event in Tampa is coming up again. It will all happen the night of Oct 16. The goal is to  raise funds for art programs in the bay area. It showcases entries from artists around the globe in a 5 by 5 format. Other artistic activities are going to be happening during the night. This will be my second year participating and I know it’ll be as good or better than the one before.

The Five by Five event. This is the first time that I have something on display. The event was held at the Tampa Museum of Art in vibrant downtown this past Friday, October 17. The event’s goal was to raise funds for the arts. The works submitted measured 5×5 and the cost of each painting was $25.

The night was splendid and there were many activities in the museum and in the Curtis Hixon Park (just outside the museum).  It was a night for the performing and visual arts; I am so glad I went and took part of this community event.

This is the little painting I submitted for the event. It is a fashion sketch and I decided to pick this one b/c of the easiness that evokes and the simple lines; the message fits right in.
