2012 FIVE BY FIVE WAS A SMASHING SUCCESS!
The first FIVE by FIVE event was held Friday, Oct. 19, 2012. Nearly 900 attendees packed the Tampa Museum of Art to witness outstanding performances from 35 actors, dancers, poets, filmmakers and musicians and an exhibition of 5×5″ artwork from 350 artists all over the world.
We collected $9,625 in artwork sales to support individual artist programs from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County that night. We couldn’t have done it without the 350 artists who submitted a total of 602 pieces of art. Our contributors came from:
236 Hillsborough County
58 Pinellas County
10 Manatee County
6 Polk County
14 Other Florida counties
19 Other states (CA, CO, GA, IL, MO, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TX, WV)
6 Other countries (Canada, Denmark, India, Poland, Portugal, Spain)
Artists acting globally to support local artist programs.
