The mission of the Morean Arts Center is to connect people with art through innovative, community-oriented art and art education and to contribute to the economic development of the region.
The Story of the Morean Arts Center dates back to 1917 when Margaret Tadd and her daughter Edith Tadd Little founded the Art Club of St. Petersburg. This was inspired by the work of Edith’s dad and Margaret’s husband J. Liberty Tadd, an art educator who founded the Florida Winter Art School in 1916. After he passed away, Margaret Tadd and her daughter Edith ran the winter school year-round. In keeping with Tadd’s legacy, they wanted to spread ideas about art education to a wider audience. Together she and Edith formed a club in 1917 with a group of artists and art lovers.
