MGA Sculpture Studio is an innovative workplace of public art and sculpture located in the heart of St. Petersburg, Florida’s Warehouse Arts District. Our focus is on larger-than-life work --- a 22’ tall stainless-steel Eagle in a full strike position; a 16,000lb full-scale replica of the first commercial airplane; or a 4,000 piece 15’ diameter acrylic chandelier, to name a noteworthy few. With a full schedule of projects through 2023 and beyond, we are in an exciting production and growth phase.

You will get to see the world of public art from the inside, from the politics to the pitches to the installations. The atmosphere varies from casual to hectic on any given day. We make serious work but have a fun time doing it. You will not only be a designer, but a part of a family of ambitious, young artists.
