Great Places to Experience Art with Kids in St. Pete

I still remember visiting art museums as a child with my parents. I often think back on these fond memories, which is one of the main reasons why I launched my non-profit, Mahogany Kids Fine Arts Foundation. The fine arts hold a special place in my heart. They helped build my self-esteem and self-confidence and served as a catalyst in helping me find my voice as a creative.

I’m so glad that we live in a place that honors the arts through museums, performing arts centers and various exhibits throughout Tampa Bay, particularly in the city of St. Petersburg, which is home to a beautiful art district with a plethora of art spaces.
