SKyway Artist Check-ins
Skyway 2020 has become Skyway 2021. We are checking in with some of the participating artists who will exhibit at the MFA to see how they’re doing during this time of social distancing, and learning more about their studio practices.

Every day, even while our doors are closed, we are “open” online. Since the MFA doors temporarily closed, so many of you have asked how you can help during this critical time. Here are a few ways you can support your museum today:
- Become a member or gift a membership
- Renew your membership
- Make a charitable gift of any size so that we can continue arts education and conservation while we were temporarily closed and when we reopen
- Shop at The MFA Store online
- Shop online with Amazon Smile (choose Museum of Fine Arts Of St Petersburg Florida Inc, and a percent of your purchases will be donated to the Museum)
