The Morean Arts Center - 719 Central Ave - St Petersburg, FLA 33701 - 727-822-7872 photo by Beth Reynolds Whether you’re an artist, volunteer, and/or supporter, you play a key role in making sure the Morean Arts Center continues as the vibrant arts center it’s been for nearly a century.

Since 1917, when we began as the Art Club of St. Petersburg, the Morean Arts Center has contributed to arts education and arts appreciation in our community for generations. The Morean Arts Center is the oldest arts organization in the Tampa Bay region — the first art gallery south of Atlanta and the cultural hub of the arts in St. Petersburg.

The Morean Arts Center provides art education 363 days a year through excellent, innovative, community-oriented initiatives at four unique venues: the Morean Arts Center, Glass Studio & Hot Shop, Morean Center for Clay, and the Chihuly Collection.

Do you like what you’ve seen throughout the year? If so, remember we rely on financial support at all levels to ensure the quality and quantity of programs we offer and to sustain our historic organization.

We continue to develop additional revenue sources, but unexpected building & equipment repairs and technology costs have stressed the current budget. Private donations – beyond memberships, grants, corporate sponsors, etc. – account for a significant portion of the Morean Arts Center’s annual income. We truly can’t do it without your support.

We hope we can count on your generosity. You can even make a tribute gift in honor or memory of a friend, loved one, teacher, or fellow artist. Click HERE or call 727.822.7872 to make a donation.

Thank you for being part of our community – for connecting, exchanging ideas, and celebrating the creative spirit that makes our organization so special.

P.S. There can be substantial tax advantages to making a charitable gift of appreciated securities. If you would like to make a gift of securities, please contact the Director of Development by phone at 727.822.7872 ext. 2120 or by email at, and we will be happy to assist you.
