Best new fundraiser: Five By Five

Best new fundraiser

Last October, the Arts Council of Hillsborough County launched Five By Five, a benefit sale of 5x5-inch artworks. Buyers picked pieces, which were displayed without attribution, for $25 a pop — gambling on snagging a piece by an established artist or just a cool collectible. The event attracted hundreds of partygoers to host venue TMA and raised $9,625 to support grants for individual artists. tampaarts.org.
