The big ships of Port Tampa are hitting the highways of Tampa. Laura Waller’s painting of OIG Giant II is part of her series of paintings featuring the working ships in the Port of Tampa.
Dividing her schedule between her two studios in Maine and Florida, Laura Waller paints full time and is currently working on her series, Port of Tampa Bay, which was featured in a 2015 solo exhibition at the Clayton Galleries, Tampa, FL. Her award-winning work is collected by individuals and corporations nationwide. A solo exhibition of the latest of Laura Waller’s Port Tampa Bay Series will open January 2017 at Clayton Galleries in Tampa Florida.
Laura’s work is being shown on two OUTFRONT digital boards in these two locations:
- Dale Mabry Highway, .5 mile north of Hillsborough Ave, visible to northbound drivers (this is just north of Raymond James Stadium)
- State Road 60 (aka Brandon Blvd) .5 mile east of I-75, visible to eastbound drivers (this is just east of the Westfield mall)
OUTFRONT Media estimates that each week nearly 250,000 will see the boards displaying the art as they travel those busy highways.
Artwork from seven local artists will pop up on various billboards as part of ArtPop Tampa, a year-long program sponsored by the Arts Council of Hillsborough County, ArtPop and OUTFRONT Media. The artwork will travel to different locations during the program.
