The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance (SPAA) partnered with museum leaders to provide an overview of the St. Pete Museum Experience to brand St. Petersburg as a city of museums! Nine museums participated in this project and include great depth and diversity in the experiences they offer to our community and to visitors. From Glass to Native American, from Fine Art to Children's...options for every interest and more. There is a compilation video that showcases all nine museums and then a video for each museum separately.
The funding for this project came from the Comprehensive Arts Strategy with support from the City of St. Petersburg, the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay and the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership. The marketing support for this project comes from the National Endowment for the Arts and Pinellas Cares grants. These videos will be shared on websites and social media, as well as being sent out to art writers, magazines and publications online throughout the country. The goal is to increase museum attendance and also invigorate tourism for the City of St. Pete.
Participating museums include the Chihuly Museum, the Dali Museum, Great Explorations Children’s Museum, the St. Petersburg History Museum, The Florida Holocaust, Imagine Museum, The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, and the Dr. Carter Woodson African American History Museum.
