The Morean Arts Center, the region’s oldest community arts center, has re-opened their free galleries on Central Avenue and Morean Center for Clay at 420 22nd Street South in St. Petersburg. In January the Pelican, amazing, sometimes awkward, and omnipresent was designated the official bird of the City of St. Petersburg. “Pelican Proud” an exhibition opening Saturday, June 13 at the Morean Arts Center, will also celebrate the shorebird becoming a symbol of our community’s resiliency.
