ICONIC: Portrait Edition

Witness the portraits of three local icons being created live, as nine talented artists compete head-to-head for a variety of prizes. This spectacular fundraising event supports the Morean Arts Center as we continue our mission of creatively engaging the St. Petersburg community. 

Night Blow: Performance Art Glass Blowing in the Dark

Take the enchantment of glass blowing and then amp it up to level 11…
Back-lit by nothing more than a fiery hot kiln and our performers’ molten glass creations, Night Blow creates a spotlight on the heartbeat of glass-blowing, backed with synchronized music choreographed by the evening’s DJ.

Great St. Pete Cupcake Competition

Our artsy annual bake-off! Attendees pick out a dozen cupcakes and then vote for their favorite flavor to win the People’s Choice Award. Winners receive a glass-blown cupcake trophy created by the Morean Glass Studio artists.
