Artists rally to support new St. Petersburg Pier

ST. PETERSBURG — WOW our Waterfront St. Pete, a private organization that supports the city's plans to build a new Pier known as the Lens, is bringing together dozens of artists for a program Thursday.

The event, called "The New Pier in the City," will take place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S.

More than 40 artists are expected to participate in the program, described as "celebrating the Pier's iconic addition to the city's artistic DNA."

Organized by fashion designer Ivanka Ska, the evening will include original art, a silent auction, fashion show, reception and a presentation about the planned $50 million Pier.
