2020 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Mason Schwacke

There are many ways to SUPPORT St. Petersburg’s thriving arts community. From Arts Advocacy to becoming an Arts Business Partner, your actions and your choices make a crucial difference.

When you explore local galleries and visit artist studios during Second Saturday ArtWalk and shop local – you’re supporting working artists. When you take a class, attend a performance, volunteer at an arts organization or write a letter supporting arts in schools, you’re part of the arts in St. Petersburg. 

Your partnership with the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is an investment in this vibrant community that values creativity – and does everything possible to allow the arts to flourish.

When you donate to the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, you help us provide professional training for artists, assist students struggling to afford arts classes and support community arts projects. Your contribution helps us organize arts events open to everyone – Second Saturday ArtWalk and the SHINE Mural Festival – and celebrate the arts and working artists every day.

Volunteers are vital in the Arts Alliance as we advocate for the arts, empower artists and creative businesses, drive arts-related economic development in St. Petersburg and support in-school, after-school and professional education programs. 

On the local, state and national levels – now more than ever – the ARTS need strong advocates.
