• Creative Clay to host “Spring for the Arts”

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Creative Clay’s annual spring fundraiser returns May 3 to Duncan McClellan Glass Studio in St. Petersburg’s Warehouse Arts District. “Spring for the Arts” is a celebration of the non-profit’s 22nd anniversary of making the arts accessible to all. All funds raised during the 6-9 p.m. event go directly back toward funding Creative Clay’s programs.

    Guests may purchase tickets at $75 each, which provides gourmet food, two drink tickets, live music, a Hot Shop demonstration, silent auction and chance to win $100 in scratch-off Florida Lottery tickets. In addition, original art by Creative Clay member artists will be available for purchase throughout the evening. Creative Clay’s member artists will also be at the party doing portraits of guests.

    Duncan McClellan Glass is situated on a 7,800 square-foot former fish and tomato packing plant. Glass artist and gallery owner Duncan McClellan has transformed the spot into a beautiful, multi-functional space. The grounds have become a meeting place for glass artists, visiting dignitaries and the community.

    “This will be our second year having Spring for the Arts at Duncan’s. It’s an unforgettable space to celebrate and we love that the rental fees for the space go directly back to support the DMG School Project, a wonderful program providing arts access to schools across our county,” said Dohrman.

    Sponsorship opportunities for $5000.00, $2500.00 and $1000.00 are available. And, tickets may be purchased online prior to the event.
