ArtPop Tampa: Live!

Artpop Tampa Billboard Caitlin Albritton

Since the ArtPop Tampa billboards were put up when I was in Baltimore, I finally had the chance to see the electronic billboard in person this week!

Bringing the beard to the people.

Once again, I have to give thanks to all of those who helped out and voted for me for the People’s Choice ArtPop Tampa, I truly appreciate your support!

White Crease/Grassy Field

White Crease/Grassy Field

White Crease/Grassy Field, 8 x 8 x 1 in, sculpted oil on panel, 2015

This piece must have been an omen for the weather recently in Florida, it’s been pouring rain the past few weeks here! Like the main color in this new painting, all of the grass and trees are a bright, vibrant green. This was the last painting I made before I started my first MFA summer session at MICA. Hope everyone else is staying dry!

Big Brown Peel/Purple Scrapes

I’m just finally starting to get my feet on the ground after finishing my first intense 6-week summer at MICA for the low-residency MFA program, so I am just getting around to documenting all of my new works. Here is one of my favorite pieces made in Baltimore, and I am surprised that it made it home in one piece with that large flap of oil paint hanging precariously off the edge!

ArtPop on Hart Buses

ArtPop 7Q Caitlin 7.12.15 TPA

In addition to my painting being featured on two billboards in the Tampa/Brandon area, my work is also featured on the side of a Hart bus that runs all through the city! I am incredibly grateful and thankful to Hart, Outfront Media, and Arts Council of Hillsborough County for supporting the ArtPop program to foster the arts in our community. Keep your eye out for the other local artists’ works if you’re in town! Find out more about these other local artists here: http://tampaarts.com/artpop-2/
