What is the Artist Enclave?
In 2014, the St. Petersburg City Council unanimously approved Historic Kenwood’s submission for an Artist Enclave Overlay District (AEOD). What does AEOD mean and how does it affect the community? The special distinction allows a limited amount of commercial activity to take place in the Historic Kenwood neighborhood. Artists can create artwork, teach students and sell their creations from their own homes. These special accommodations encourage a thriving arts community without the accompanying burden of renting studio and/or gallery space.
