The Henry B. Plant Museum invites artists of all ages and levels of experience to help commemorate Henry Plant’s 199th birthday with a celebration of art. In his home and in his hotels, Henry surrounded himself with beautiful works of art of all mediums. To honor his legacy, the Museum will host a one-day only exhibition of new art inspired by the visionary railroad and steamship magnate Henry Bradley Plant.
Artists from the Tampa Bay area (Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, and Sarasota counties) are invited to submit one piece of visual art that reflects one of the many aspects of Henry’s life. The work may be in any style, as long as the topic is based on or evokes the spirit of Henry’s extraordinary accomplishments, his impact on the development of Florida, his transportation empire the Plant System, his grand resort hotels, or his legacy.
