Jim Rolston Memorial Professional Development Grant 

Helps Support Emerging Artists

st pete art allianceThe St. Petersburg Arts Alliance has established the Jim Rolston Memorial Professional Development Grant.  The $5,000 grant is intended to provide financial assistance to a St. Petersburg artist for training or education in improving or developing new art forms that will facilitate taking his/her work to the next level.

An accomplished artist and sculptor, Jim Rolston was a founding board member of the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. He truly found his artistic voice when he was able to devote all of his time to his art after retiring.  Continually working to develop his talent, he was committed to arts education and training. Jim’s family and friends established this fund in his memory, feeling that it is a fitting tribute to his belief that an artist’s journey is never over – there is always more to experience and learn.
