AT THE TAMPA MUSEUM OF ART
FIVE by FIVE 2014, now in its third year, is a celebration for all the arts — an exciting night of performances and visual art featuring an anonymous exhibition from accomplished artists worldwide.
The visual exhibition features 5″×5″ artwork made and donated by international and local artists — professional, emerging and student. Each 5″x5″ artwork is signed by the artist on the back of the work, displayed anonymously and sold for $25 each to raise money for individual artist grants and programs.
Beyond the visual art exhibition, fantastic and extraordinary performances are presented throughout the evening by local artists in music, dance, theatre, film and spoken word.
FIVE by FIVE was created by the Arts Council’s Artist Advisory Committee with several goals in mind — to give all artists an additional opportunity to show their work and to make possible the collection/purchasing of artwork for an affordable amount. It was felt this would also enable those who might not usually buy original art to start collecting and thereby benefit artists beyond this one-night event. Buyers choose the work they purchase based on its appeal only and not whether the artist is known or unknown since all work is shown anonymously.
