Seventh Annual MUSE Awards Recognize Five Local “Muses”



The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is proud to announce the 2020 MUSE Award honorees.

MUSE will celebrate artistic inspiration on Friday, February 28, 2020 at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg at 7:00 p.m.  This annual benefit for the arts will recognize the breadth and beauty of art and culture in our City of the Arts, and pay tribute to the individuals who continue to inspire and guide St. Petersburg to its standing as an international arts destination. 

MUSE will be designed to complement the Museum’sexhibit, Art of the Stage: Picasso to Hockney.  Join us for a night of provocative musings and muses; with live art performances from the turn of the century to the cultural future. No long speeches or rubber chicken dinner here – instead you’ll enjoy gourmet bites, creatively crafted cocktails and decadent dessert bars. For six years MUSE has been the arts event of the year, and will again feature surprises not seen anywhere else.
