Art Tubs For Pinellas County Schools

ARTIST CALL for Detailed Color Paintings or Drawings of the exterior of the Dali Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, the Palladium, Royal Theatre, Carter G. Woodson Museum and the Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement. 

The Warehouse Arts District Association Education Committee has been working on a project to create Art Tubs for Pinellas County Schools. WADA Art Tubs are a student directed independent activity that allows students to explore the subject with materials in a tub. There are tubs for math, science and language arts, and our WADA Art Tubs project aims to create one for visual arts, to be utilized in the elementary art classrooms for grades K-5.

Our first WADA Art Tub project is a set of artisan-made architectural building blocks where students have the opportunity to create their own buildings, inspired by art-focused buildings in St. Petersburg, Florida.

We are looking for an artistically detailed color rendering of these local 6 buildings: Dali Museum, Museum of Fine Art, Carter G. Woodson Museum, Royal Theater, Palladium, and Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement. 

Artist Payment is $400.

In an effort to push this Call to Artist out to a diverse population, please feel free to share this Call with other qualified local St. Petersburg artists. 

WADA will purchase the rights to a digital copy of your building image artwork for our WADA Art Tub Project under the following agreement:  

    • Image will be used in the creation of 12 tubs and will appear on the tub exterior at approx. 2 inches x 3 inches 
    • Image will be used in high resolution form for publicity of this project in which the artists will receive credit 
    • WADA will also reserve the rights to use this image in future duplications of this project. 
    • WADA will not own the original artwork nor exclusive rights to the image.

Interested artists must return a basic “Letter of Intent” by midnight, August 30, via email to WADAarttubs@gmail.com including the artist’s intent to submit, identify which building(s) they would like to render and the artist’s return physical address.  Although artists may submit for multiple buildings, each artist selected will be chosen to complete artwork for one building, allowing six artists to participate in this project.
