Local artists are invited to submit a proposal to be considered for Skyway 2024 exhibition, the Tampa Bay area’s celebration of contemporary art.

Submissions can include examples of works and past projects that provide an overview of the artist’s practice.

Artworks and projects in the exhibition will be selected by an expanded curatorial team from the five participating art institutions, including Christopher Jones, Stanton B. and Nancy W.
