Tiger Bay: Arts + Economic Development in St. Pete

April 25, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:15 pm

$25 – $35

Join Dr. Hank Hine, Executive Director of The Dali Museum; Liz Dimmitt, Cultural Curator & Strategist; Carrie Jadus, local St. Petersburg artist; and John Collins, Executive Director of St. Petersburg Arts Alliance for a panel on Arts + Economic Development in St. Petersburg.

St. Petersburg is quickly becoming a museum capital of the Southeast. From The Dali Museum to the Imagine Museum, to the Museum of Fine Arts and beyond, fine arts play a major part in our city’s economic vitality. But it doesn’t stop there. The annual Shine Festival brings artists and art enthusiasts from around the world; our outstanding performing arts organizations and venues draw local tourists from throughout the state; and public art like the much-anticipated Janet Echelmann installation at St. Petersburg’s New Pier brings St. Petersburg both public and private investments to our city. 

In 2017, The Florida Department of State undertook a study to quantify just how impactful nonprofit arts and culture organizations – and their audiences – can be. 

Florida’s arts and cultural industry generated $4.68 billion of economic activity, including $2.29 billion by nonprofit arts and culture organizations.

That activity supports 132,366 full-time jobs and generates $3.35 billion in resident household income.

The industry also delivered $492.3 million in local and state government revenue.

Hear about all of this and more at our next Tiger Bay Luncheon.
