Museum of the American Arts & Crafts Movement First Annual Gala

The inaugural Gala at the Museum of the American Arts & Crafts Movement in St. Petersburg was a resounding success. As the only institution worldwide dedicated solely to the American Arts and Crafts movement, the museum’s significance was palpable throughout the event, reflecting the vision and dedication of its founder, local philanthropist and collector Rudy Ciccarello.

Capturing the essence of this remarkable occasion was a privilege for our team as we provided our premier Red Carpet Photobooth experience, complemented by on-site printing services. With Xina and Gabe expertly managing the booth and myself maneuvering as the roaming photographer, every moment was immortalized with finesse. During the captivating presentations and lively auction proceedings, Xina seamlessly transitioned to assist as the second photographer, ensuring comprehensive coverage of the Gala’s highlights.

Welcoming over 125 esteemed attendees, the First Annual Gala featured both a dynamic live auction and an engaging silent auction. The generosity and enthusiasm displayed during the auctions underscored the community’s commitment to supporting the museum’s educational initiatives, resulting in significant contributions to their vital programs.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Rudy and Andrea for entrusting us with the privilege of documenting this momentous occasion. Their dedication to fostering cultural appreciation and education through the museum is truly commendable, and we are honored to have played a part in capturing the magic of the Gala.
