Thank you so much for visiting the Warehouse Arts District, and the Morean Center for Clay.
The Pinellas Trail, on which you are currently standing, extends 45 miles from The Pier in St. Petersburg north to Tarpon Springs. Future plans will bring the total length to 75 miles through Pinellas County and allows pedestrians, bikers and other non-motorized modes of transportation a scenic view of the entire county. Originally a functioning and busy railroad line, it was abandoned in the 1980s, and the first piece of the pedestrian trail was opened in 1990.
The Morean Center for Clay was the first arts organization to move into the Warehouse Arts District area and continue to expand its programming. The building itself was originally a 1926 Seaboard Freight Depot and was a huge part of keeping the bustling city of St. Petersburg’s stores stocked with merchandise.
Year-round programming allows youth and teen students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of this medium in addition to adult classes from beginner to advanced levels.
We invite you to come inside during business hours and take the detailed tour through our facility and the sculpture garden. Meet and greet with artists, see rotating exhibitions and shop thousands of beautiful ceramic creations. The Morean Center for Clay is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday 10am-5pm.
