St. Petersburg is a City of the Arts. St. Petersburg’s thriving arts and culture scene reaches far beyond the state of Florida. Represented by outstanding museums, scores of independent galleries, a successful, close-knit community of working artists and crafts-people, and a stellar performing arts community, St. Petersburg’s cultural scene is one of the best in the southeastern United States.
The arts in St. Petersburg not only improve the city’s quality of life, they are also an economic generator. Take a look at our City of the Arts presentation – now also in French and Spanish thanks to our international volunteers. You will see just how the arts – fine arts, theatre, music and dance come together with our arts districts and play a significant role in our vibrant City of the Arts.
