HART and TBFAD Release Call for Artists for "Art on HART" Program

Michael O' Connell's "Soundwaves"
HART is proud to once again partner with the Tampa Bay Foundation for Architecture & Design (TBFAD) on the "Art on HART" program, which transforms a HART bus into a rolling art canvas.

HART and TBFAD have put out a Call for Artists to all Tampa Bay area artists with a passion for architecture, design, and music.

The project is one of TBFAD's community outreach programs, which places artists' one-of-a-kind designs in highly accessible and visible public spaces. 

This year's theme touches on how music influences the world around us while encouraging respect for others. Artists are encouraged to incorporate Tampa Bay's wide diversity of design, architecture, and musical culture into their submission.

Interested artists are requested to register their intent to submit prior to September 27, 2019, by sending an email to TampaBayFAD@gmail.com. The deadline for artwork submissions is Friday, November 15, 2019, at 5:00 p.m.

Entries will be judged by an expert panel of judges and the TBFAD "ART on HART" Committee. HART's 800+ employees will select the winning entry. Submissions will be evaluated based on concept, originality, layout and marketing adaptability.

The winning artist will receive:
  • Their artwork wrapped on a HART bus for a year
  • A $2,000 cash award from program sponsors
  • Featured bio in the TBFAD 'ART on HART' printed program
  • Recognition on TBFAD & participating organizations social media sites.
The partnership between HART and TBFAD injects art, music and public transportation onto the streets and into the communities of Hillsborough County.

The "Art on HART" bus will be unveiled during a public event at a later date.
