The Waterfront Arts District, Central Arts District, Edge District, Grand Central District, and the Warehouse Arts District become one arts destination for the St. Petersburg Second Saturday ArtWalk on August 8 from 5 to 9 p.m.
Keep Saint Petersburg Local (KSPL) is partnering with the arts districts for August for the third consecutive year. Olga Bof, KSPL’s Founder/Executive Director states, “We’ve supported the monthly ArtWalk since our launch, as our Independent Business Alliance has included artists, art galleries/studios, museums and other cultural institutions among its members from day one. Our mission is to work to build a thriving local economy and a unique community, and the arts are very important to St. Pete. Keep Saint Petersburg Local is happy to return as a sponsor of the “Shop Local” ArtWalk for this third year.”
Be the first to see new affordable works of art, as ArtWalk is Opening Night where many galleries and studios premiere new works. It’s impossible to take in the entire ArtWalk in one night! Plan to drive, walk, or take the trolleys to visit the districts of your choice.
Free ArtWalk trolleys encompass the arts districts. Free parking can be found on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St. to 30th St., The Clay Center of St. Petersburg, MGA Studios and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum.
