It’s the coolest place to find lots of great art this summer: the 28th Annual Cool Art Show inside the St. Petersburg Coliseum. This juried show features 75 fine artists and craftsmen, including many international museum exhibitors and award winners from other shows throughout the southeast.
Always on the third weekend of July, this year’s show will be held on July 16 – 17, 2016, and will be free and open to the public from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm both days.
If you are in the market for high quality art then this is the place to be in July. You have a chance to meet and talk directly with the artists in the cool comfort of the Coliseum. We have done all the hard work for you, now you get to decide what to take home.
Hosted by the Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA), this premier indoor show takes place inside St. Petersburg’s historic Coliseum Ballroom, located at 535 4th Avenue North. Admission and onsite parking are free. Food and beverage concessions, including beer and wine, provide ample refreshments.
PAVA has been in existence for over 28 years, and is now organized formally as a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) art organization. Since its inception, Artist members from Florida and the eastern United States organize several annual high caliber art shows and educational programs, including the Annual 2Cool Art at the Gulfport Casino in February.
