The Tampa Bay Rays and the Tampa Bay Rowdies are partnering with Creative Pinellas to launch a series of prints designed by artists in Tampa Bay, to celebrate our MLB and USL teams and to honor the authentic, unique culture of our region. The goal of the project is to create a series of fun, unique prints that bring artists and fans together around a community-oriented, accessible art collectible. We are looking for each artist to create a piece that represents their own style, perspective and interpretation of the Rays/Rowdies brand.
Artists from Charlotte, Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk or Sarasota counties are invited to submit an application to be selected as the designer for a print in the series.
Artist Compensation: $1,000 + other exciting benefits to be announced
Application Deadline March 3, 2019, 11:59 p.m.
Learn more at https://creativepinellas.org/raysprintseries/. Please include CV, link to website/social media and 3-5 samples of your previous work with your application. A panel of artists, curators and other professionals will select the artists who will be invited to create the poster designs. You do not need to submit ideas for prints to apply.
