St. Petersburg, Fla.—The deadline for submitting entries to Skyway: A Contemporary Collaboration is next Thursday, December 15. This exhibition will provide an overview of the exciting and innovative contemporary art being created in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee, and Sarasota Counties.

Skyway: A Contemporary Collaboration is set for Saturday, June 24, through Sunday, October 15, 2017 at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg; the Tampa Museum of Art; and The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. The art will be selected by curators at the three museums, as well as a guest juror.

Artists are encouraged to submit original works, including, but not limited to, paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, photography, video, performance, and site-specific installations. Only those completed after January 2016 are eligible.

Art from Sarasota, for example, might be shown at the MFA or the Tampa Museum of Art. The goal is to introduce the widest possible audience to artists and art throughout the extended area and to recognize the incredible work being produced at home.

Please do not submit images or other materials directly to the participating museums. Visit the website skywaytampabay.com for instructions. To submit images, go to CallForEntry.com. For more information, email skywaytampabay@gmail.com.
