ABOUT
2018 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Tasko

Communities need a breakthrough strategy for providing artists and non-profit arts organizations with critical operating support, and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance has taken on that challenge.

Founded in 2012, the Arts Alliance evolved from a shared desire among city and community leaders to make a serious investment in our local arts organizations, artists and creative businesses.

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the only 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to raising money and advocating for our entire creative community – artists, arts and cultural organizations, and creative businesses. We raise money through individual and corporate gifts, event sponsorships, and grants that support community-wide arts efforts.

Our Mission

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the umbrella organization serving this vital arts and cultural community. Join us in advocating for the arts, facilitating the growth of our arts community and driving arts-related economic development in St. Petersburg.

Our Vision

St. Petersburg is an arts destination with generous and ongoing support from the City, the business community and all who live and work here.
