Hillsborough Arts, Inc. is pleased to collaborate with the Arts Council of Hillsborough County on its FIVE by FIVE annual fundraising event.

Small art for a BIG cause!

FIVE by FIVE is the Arts Council’s biggest night of the year and celebrates all that’s fantastic about the arts. Performances from local professionals in theatre, dance, music and spoken word are showcased as well as an anonymous exhibition from artists worldwide.

Attendees at the 2015 event saw art from artists throughout our area, the United States and several other countries PLUS Tampa Museum’s exciting fall exhibition on the second floor, XTO+J-C: Christo and Jeanne-Claude Featuring Works from the Bequest of David C. Copley, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.

In addition to the exhibitions and performances, a limited edition artwork raffle was held on the night of the event – a 1996 limited edition artist proof (#12 of 28) from James Rosenquist entitled “The Meteor Hits Picasso’s Bed” signed by the artist. The work was donated to Hillsborough Arts by the artist in recognition of the need for support of local artist programs.

Held each fall, the FIVE by FIVE event raises funds for the individual artist programs of the Arts Council. More information can be found at the event website,
