Long time residents of Temple Terrace consider the TT Arts Festival to be one of the longest standing traditions in our community. And so it is with the 40th annual being planned for November 9th and 10th at Riverhills Park. However many people don’t know that the Arts Council works year round to promote and support the growth of arts in the city of Temple Terrace. Hosting the annual arts and crafts festival is just one project of the Council although it is the highlight of their work.
Funds raised through the arts and crafts festival and other events such as an annual Art Auction are donated to art programs, scholarships, non-profit organizations or activities promoting art excellence. Just stop by Riverhills Elementary to see the delightful walls sponsored by the Council or visit the kiln at Terrace Community School. Here young artists are working with materials provided by the council through a school grant. Selected works of art hang at the Lightfoot Center (where they can be purchased throughout the year).
The Arts Festival is many things to many different people. To those looking for an idyllic setting to display their fine or contemporary works of art, the calm and serene setting along the bank of the Hillsborough River is the perfect place to highlight their work. And to those who make the trek to the park an annual event to find that perfect birthday or holiday gift, the combination of scenery and talent is well worth saving time on their hectic calendars. Of course the event also offers food and entertainment to keep everyone entertained.
School children from the local elementary schools are busy working on their “Fresh Views” art entries which will be on display throughout the park. Who knows how many budding artists were inspired after winning a ribbon at the Festival over the past 39 years? During the two-day activity, young artists of any age can participate in making their own work of art under the instruction of members of the Arts Council.
