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 incoming ArtsXchange artists.
  • Hard hat tours of the construction site.
  • Live music
  • Cold beer, wine, soda and water for a donation
  • Opportunity tickets for amazing items
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!
