2023 MUSE Award Winners

MUSE celebrates the diversity of all the arts and culture in St. Petersburg and pays tribute to the remarkable talent and variety that can be discovered around every corner of our amazing city. 

What has become the most talked about art party of the season is where you will enjoy spontaneous performances and vignettes featuring the best in local performing and visual arts; gourmet delicacies and cool libations; interactive art opportunities and, of course, the celebration of six outstanding 2023 MUSE award winners.   

Celebrate Artists and Art-lovers

The MUSE Awards are presented by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance to celebrate the artists and art-lovers in our community.  No stiff tuxes, no boring speeches – it’s a pARTy to uniquely honor the creative individuals who spark St. Petersburg. And a crucial fundraiser for the Arts Alliance’s work. 

This is an evening to re-energize and renew our commitment to collaborating all year long to make St. Petersburg truly a City of the Arts.

SPAA celebrates the following awards (to be announced in the coming weeks) during MUSE every year:
