For the past one hundred years, the organization known today as the Morean Arts Center has been a resource and a destination for artists and art lovers.

As a community-based visual arts organization that has been a part of the St. Petersburg cultural landscape since 1917, the Morean Arts Center connects people with art through daily programming, offered 363 days each year.
