MGA Sculpture Studio has been hard at work on a new and exciting project:
CONVOCATION ✨✨

Covered in over 1,600 birds found in the El Paso, Texas region, and standing at 40 ft tall, this will be the tallest, freestanding piece to date that MGA has constructed, and will become a monumental work of art for the El Paso Police department and community!

Come join Mark and the team at MGA Sculpture Studio Saturday, December 9th for this month's second Saturday Artwalk. From 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., you are invited to check out our working studio space in the ArtsXchange where we create large scale public artworks for local and national collections, as well as checking out our current and upcoming projects.

We hope to see you all!

NOV. 3 - "Instrument of Hope" keeping the conversation about gun violence prevention on the main stage.

Round Table Discussion: 6:30-7:30 PM

Performance: 7:30-9 PM

The Warehouse Arts District Association, in collaboration with the Al Downing Tampa Bay Jazz Association, EMIT, Arts Axis, WUSF Jazz and Seven C Music are excited to announce the "Instrument of Hope" concert and roundtable discussion.

The Instrument of Hope is a trumpet built from parts of bullet casing in response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Highschool shooting in Parkland, FL. It has since then traveled around the US to promote healing and conversation about gun violence prevention. Composer and Arranger Kim Scharnberg has complied testimonies from former students and survivors and will lead the roundtable discussion.

The concert will feature some of Tampa Bay’s best musicians assembled by the Al Downing Tampa Bay Jazz Association. Its roots can be traced back to the 1980s and to the joint efforts of Al Downing and the late Ernie Calhoun, renowned saxophonist and humanitarian from Tampa, Florida. This event is part of the Warehouse Arts District Association's Concert Series, titled "Jazz and Politics: Harmony & Discourse."

This event will take place at the ArtsXchange, located at 515 22nd Street South, St. Petersburg, on Friday, November 3rd, from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Ticket pricing options include General Admission tickets priced at $15 and discounted tickets for WADA and Al Downing members at $10. Become a member HERE to qualify for discounted tickets. The event schedule is as follows:

• 6:30-7:30 PM: Roundtable discussion on gun violence prevention featuring community leaders, artists, and survivors at Seven C Music on the ArtsXchange campus.

• 7:30-9 PM: Concert presented by Al Downing Tampa Bay Jazz Association, featuring the “Instrument of Hope” at the ArtsXchange Outdoor Theater.

Join us at the ArtsXchange for an unforgettable evening of music, dialogue, and community engagement.
