See you at MUSE 2020

Our annual MUSE celebration of the arts is an unforgettable night for artists, arts patrons and creative business owners. Live music and live artwork, dancing, cheer and camaraderie make for a beautiful celebration as we honor special artists and arts supporters who, through their creative work, are St. Petersburg’s Muses. 

We come together to revel in the visual, performing and literary arts at the elegant Museum of Fine Arts, on St. Pete’s scenic waterfront.

 

Join us as we party with our artistic community
