Located just outside of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, the Warehouse Arts District has become a haven for artists in a city with increasing rents. The ArtsExchange is the just the beginning of a collective of spaces to for artists of all styles looking to make it in their career, or just simply make art.

With a major cut in arts funding by the State of Florida setting in, Warehouse Arts Director Executive Director Diane Bailey Morton indicates self-funding ideas, such as multi-use space, alongside the city's arts friendly reputation, are key to maintain and nurture a true creative community in St. Pete.

Artist Nancy Cohen may be a late bloomer in many ways, but as a New Yorker, she prefers the lifestyle, St. Pete offers and the access it gives to artists. The ability to play poker at the Hard Rock doesn't hurt either.
