The Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood was created when the St. Petersburg City Council in 2014 approved Historic Kenwood to become an Artist Enclave Overlay District (AEOD).
The AEHK is part of the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association. It is a mix of small-scale home businesses oriented toward or supporting the visual, performing and cultural arts, while maintaining the residential character of the Historic Kenwood neighborhood.
An Artist is defined by the Enclave as an individual who practices and/or who creates a product in one of the following categories: Fine Art, Craft Art, Design, Photography, Filmmaking, Musical, Literary or Performing Art.
The AEHK includes artists working in a broad range of art disciplines, creating works of the highest caliber and encouraging emerging artists to explore, develop, showcase, and market their creative voices.
It is a creative community that supports and promotes the work of all artists living and/or working in Historic Kenwood hosting neighborhood-wide studio tours and other events several times a year.
