Artist Enclave Historic Kenwood
Historic Kenwood, one of the oldest neighborhoods in St. Petersburg, is distinguished by its unique bungalows and Craftsman-style homes, some dating from the early 1900’s. Because of Historic Kenwood’s high concentration of artists of all types, the City Council sought to promote the arts and artists by declaring the neighborhood an “Artist Enclave”. This status enables artists of the neighborhood to teach classes and sell artwork from their homes.
Artists of Historic Kenwood would like to extend their gratitude to our Titanium level sponsor Jim Longstreth (jimsellsstpete.com).
Congratulations to our newest Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood member, Andee Scott for securing a grant for her innovative performing arts award!
We look forward to hearing more – and supporting – in this unique creative project!
“Andee Scott will create a non-traditional, site-specific dance residency/performance project for five female choreographers that seeks to place the work of making and performing dance within the context of recognized forms of “work.” This project seeks to contextualize dance as public art, providing audiences multiple opportunities to encounter dance in their everyday lives, with both the rehearsal/creation process and the performance occurring during regular business hours, free and open to the public.”
