Eighth-Annual Open Call to Artists


Calling Tampa Artists!

Want to have your art displayed at Amalie Arena for an estimated 1.5 million annual visitors? We're delighted to invite Lightning fans and artists to the eight annual Celebration of the Arts and showcase the tremendous talent of our local artists, where the art selected is for sale with all of the proceeds going directly to the artists.

The contest includes the following awards: Top Three Artists Overall ($1,000 each), Honorable Mentions ($250 each) and Top Three Youth Artists ($250 each).

In the first seven years, we have proudly displayed over 280 local pieces of art for the Arena's estimated 1.5 million annual visitors. Mrs. Vinik along with representatives from Tampa Bay Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts of St. Pete, the Ringling Museum of Art, and the Dali Museum serve as jurors each year to help select the art.

Here are photos of a few selected pieces from previous years to enjoy!
