After two years consolidating its vision, rallying community support and raising funds, the Warehouse Arts District Association (WADA) has broken ground on the ArtsXchange, a 50,000 square foot facility that will create sustainable, affordable art studios and educational space in the greater St. Petersburg Midtown community!

The ArtsXchange will be an amazing resource for the city of St. Petersburg, for local artists, and for the community at large.  Construction is under way and we want the community to witness this vision as it comes to life. 

Our “Hard Hat” reception and fundraiser will feature:

  • Remarks by St. Petersburg Mayor, Rick Kriseman at 5:30pm.
  • An art exhibit by 13 incoming ArtsXchange artists - Anne Marie Masson, Donald Silvestri, John Flavin, Karen Frimmel, Laura Flavin, Nancie Norman, Patton Hunter, Sharon Rose, Sue Johnson, Ted VanCleave, Tom Amidon, Jenny Bleackley, and Libit Jones,
  • Hard hat tours of the construction site.
  • Live music by The Wrenchers
  • Cold beer, wine, soda and water for a donation
  • Opportunity tickets for amazing items such as a VIP tour at Kozuba & Sons Distillery, gift certificates to local business, free yoga, artwork, children's book and more!

WADA has raised the funds to begin construction but still needs funds to complete the first phase of the project.

$20 suggested donation.

Thank you sponsors!

“The development of the ArtsXchange will ensure that there is affordable studio space for artists and arts educational opportunities in St. Petersburg as the city continues to develop.”
