INDIAN ROCKS BEACH – Creative Pinellas will host its Beach FEAST micro-funding event Thursday, March 27 at the Beach Art Center, 1515 Bay Palm Blvd.
All FEAST proceeds will directly benefit Pinellas County artists. Artists vying for funds at this event include Robin Borland, Chad Mize, Tiffany Razzano with Wordier Than Thou and Ryan Swanson with The Urban Conga. They were selected from a pool of applicants by independent artist Thaddeus Root of St. Petersburg.
Borland is seeking support for her workshop series that provides art therapy to veterans, while Mize hopes to create collaborative public art murals. Razzano aims to publish the second volume of her Wordier Than Thou literature magazine, featuring works by local authors. Swanson wants to bring The Urban Conga’s musical Color Code Bench to Pinellas County.
Beach FEAST is one in a series of Creative Pinellas programs that present a new way of thinking about incubating the area’s arts community. These programs are designed to increase the number of great arts projects in Pinellas County, and promote the area as a destination for artistic exhibition and experimentation. By making well-directed cultural investments, FEAST is positioned to create a large impact with small-dollar funding.
Tickets are $20 and include tokens that allow you to vote on how the money raised that evening is distributed. Additional tokens to vote are also available to purchase. Food will be provided by Guppy’s on the Beach Grill & Bar.
