The Thornhill Foundation for the Arts‘ annual flagship programming event is ArtLAB. ArtLAB (Live Artist Battle) is an all-ages Arts Festival and live juried art show. The community event hosts an open-air market, offers hands-on activities, and provides local Tampa Bay artists a forum to create personal 2D artwork around a theme, followed by a public gallery showing and auction.
The Second Annual ArtLAB will be held on Saturday, October 20, 1018 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. The all-ages Arts Festival will include interactive events for the community at large, as well as families, to be able to experience, create, and collaborate through the arts.
Artists over the age of 18 will paint on site under the sprawling oak trees at the Carrollwood Cultural Center. Concurrent family-friendly events and activities will be held adjacent to the live art show.
