Tampa Bay, it’s time to bring the heat. Show us your flavors, passion, fires, popsicle-melting, egg-on-a-sidewalk-cooking heat. Ready for our first art show?

Ad 2 Tampa Bay is a collective filled with more than just kick ass marketers. We are also made up of thinkers, planners, and artists looking for creative outlets in and out of their 9-5. What’s even better is we often find those creative outlets that help other people. So, we’ve gathered 25+ of Tampa Bay’s best artists to bring you an interactive show that’s sure to light your fire. Even better? It’s in support of a great cause: Vets 2 Success.

Vets 2 Success executes a variety of 12 to 16-week boot camps focused on food, brewing, and agriculture designed to find veterans work after service. So while this will be an evening of community and art that gets ya fired up, a portion of our proceeds will be dedicated to helping Vets 2 Success build foundations right here in Tampa.

Tell me more about Vets 2 Success.

Vets 2 Success was founded by Navy Corpsman Veteran, Bryan Jacobs, who found renewed passion and purpose during his transition to civilian life through culinary training––even going to school in France. However, Bryan experienced firsthand just how difficult this transition can be. Sadly, he lost his own brother to Veteran suicide. From this, he became determined to help Veterans find their own passion and purpose through the trade that helped him so much.

Do I have to be a member of Ad 2?

Nope. This is a community thing. We’d love for you to join us, though.

Why is there a ticket to check out the show?

Ad 2 is one not-for-profit organization supporting another. This will help us cover rental fees, donate to Vets 2 Success, support future Ad 2 initiatives like scholarships.

Will the art be for sale?

Most of it, yes! Prices are dictated by artists and any transactions can be made directly with them.

I can’t make it, will you post the art online? Can I still make donations?

Yes and yes. Stay tuned.
