It’s like Ted Talk– with beer! Drink, learn, connect, and talk about fun, interesting stuff!

    Doors open at 6:30pm. Presentations begin promptly at 7pm. 

    Tickets are $6.91 in advance.  All tickets will be sold online.  And we always sell out!

    Mark Aeling presents:
    Problem Solving for Design and Fabrication of Monumental Sculpture

    Thinking big is fun and exciting but making big is full of complications. Mark will share insights into the creative and technical processes behind manifesting large scale concepts. Inevitably, the talk will get into the weeds regarding materials and techniques that allow for ideas to become reality and discuss how to rely on the known to resolve the unknown in the creative process.

    Sculptor Mark Aeling earned his Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture at Washington University, St Louis in 1993. Mark opened MGA Sculpture Studio, LLC in St Louis, MO in 1996 and relocated to St. Petersburg, FL in 2005. MGA has focused on Public Art and Private Development Commissions that are located throughout the United States. Mark’s sculpture is inspired by the inherent mathematical forms that are found in nature. He works in a variety of materials and uses many techniques for his creative process. Mark is also an arts advocate and the Board President for the Warehouse Arts District Association, a not for profit organization in St Petersburg, FL.
