Museum of Fine Arts

Local nameMuseum of Fine Arts
LocationSt. Petersburg, Florida, United States

The MFA was founded by art collector and philanthropist Margaret Acheson Stuart. As its first president, Mrs. Stuart contributed significantly to the construction of the building and provided endowment funds through her estate to support annual operations and to maintain the beauty of the grounds. She also provided monies to acquire art and donated works from her collection. The Margaret Acheson Stuart Society, the Museum's independent support organization, is named in her honor.

The city provided the four-acre waterfront site for the construction of the original building and The Junior League of St. Petersburg offered resources for The Great Hall. The building was designed by John Volk and Associates of Palm Beach, with a curving colonnade on Beach Drive that embraces the community.
