The Tampa Bay Lightning, in partnership with local artist Pep Rally Inc., unveiled the team's collaborative billboard project on South Howard Avenue in South Tampa.
The winning billboard was created by Pep Rally Inc., consiting of artists Joshua Pearson, Jay Giroux and Greg Bryon, from a hand-drawn sketch that was chosen during a fan vote on TampaBayLightning.com in September.
In honor of the fan-backed creative selection, a run of 100 limited-edition prints will be for sale only in the Tampa Bay Sports powered by Reebok store on Thursday night at AMALIE Arena.
The special prints will be $25 and all the profits will go to Community Stepping Stones, a non-profit learning center (501c3) offering after-school, arts-inspired curriculum to prepare at-risk youth to become successful adults.
Pep Rally Inc. is a group of three distinctly different arts that joined forces to turn conceptual ideas into reality. Since their inception in 2014 they have collaborated with some of Tampa's favorite business and charities on a wide range of creative projects. Their work can be found all over Tampa Bay from downtown to Seminole Heights, from St Petersburg to Ybor City.
