A Virtual Fundraising Celebration to Benefit our Arts Community

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance will host our first ever virtual silent auction benefit: CURATE ST. PETE | Arts Fair.  Online bidding will begin December 6 and culminate with a virtual celebration and live auction on Sunday, December 13, 2020 at 7 p.m.  The benefit is chaired by Steve and Marie Beaty.


The CURATE ST. PETE | Arts Fair will spotlight artists and their work, providing them an online presence for direct sales during the holiday season.  Sponsored by Duke Energy, the art sales will be split to benefit both the artists and St. Petersburg Arts Alliance.  SPAA's  goal is to develop a new website platform next year that will provide more access for our artists sell their art online.  


SPAA recently created CURATE ST. PETE | Gallery Tours ( to support our  studios and galleries; providing access to those that do not have the resources to establish and maintain a virtual creative business.  Currently 28 video tours shine a spotlight on the artists and gallerists while “touring” inside their creative businesses.  The Alliance hopes to increase the number of tours, marketing our creative businesses under one umbrella website.
