From Member Jo-An Frances

The artist members of Warehouse Arts District Association maintain their own exhibitions and shows utilizing WADA’s website and social media to promote their activities.  Members volunteer at numerous public events to promote WADA and encourage the public to become more involved in the art community. The use of the website and social media platform as a central portal for art in the community has become increasingly beneficial to the artists and the public. The Warehouse Arts District Association markets the art district and is involved in the master plan and district overlay for the various art districts within St. Petersburg. Warehouse Arts District Association volunteers staff the Second Saturday Art Walk trolley and have been instrumental in extending the boundaries covered by the trolley. We also act as an advocate for the art community representing the various artists and interfacing with the city and government entities as well as coordinating community activities.
