Limited edition First Night buttons, are designed each year by a local artist in support of the First Night’s event for the arts. This year’s 2019 First Night St Pete button art was designed by Jennifer Kosharek who brings whimsical joy to all through her signature character, Gretchen. Jennifer Kosharek is a freestyle-spraypaint– street artist, rag doll maker, mail artist and painter/illustrator in St Petersburg, FL.  This custom designed button will provide you the opportunity to paint with local muralists, create your own portrait, set your new years resolutions in a candlelit labyrinth, to make a wish at the wishing wall, attend a puppet show, design an instrument, play an instrument, entry in to a wide variety of musical performances, silent disco, breath taking dance performances and aerial and acrobatic amazement. While in route to the venue destinations this year, be sure to keep an eye out for magicians, jugglers, acro-artists and more!

Your purchase of the custom designed artist button will allow you entry in to over ten venues and will give First Night go’ers eight hours of interactive art exhibits, music, dance, aerial arts, puppetry and so much more!
