St. Petersburg, Fla. – Warehouse Arts District (February 24, 2014) – The Warehouse Arts District in collaboration with the Arts Association of St. Petersburg, the Edge District, the Central Arts District, the Grand Central District and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance are proud to announce the Second Saturday “mARTi gras” Artwalk on March 8, 2014 from 5-9pm!
Please join us as our Art Trolleys take you on a tour of over 35 warehouses, galleries and studios that are staying open late just for you! Handmade, one of a kind, unique, local art make excellent gifts! Ride the trolley to these venues or download the map to drive yourself.
This month we have two trolleys running on one continuous loop from the roundabout at 10th Street and Central Avenue to deep in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. The shortened loop is to help reduce rider wait time! You can also use The Central Avenue Trolley ($.50) to reach galleries and shops on Central Avenue to Beach Drive. The March trolley is sponsored by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and Courtyard by Marriott St. Petersburg Downtown. Browse, watch and purchase “Where Art is Made”!
Free trolley parking can be found on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street. Additional parking will be available for trolley riders in the vacant lot at the Northeast corner of Central Avenue and 29th Street (Please note that this is NOT one of our trolley stops). In addition, venues with large free parking lots are Duncan McClellan, Soft Water Studio and St. Pete Clay Company.
