"Art's Alive" w/ Bill DeYoung 5-31-23 Liz Dimmitt and Mikhail Mansion, Fairgrounds St. Pete
Fairgrounds St. Pete features the work of 70 local and regional artists; it’s a walk-through series of rooms, open spaces and areas that defy description, all created with fun and whimsy in mind.
During the conversation Dimmitt describes how, during her travels, she grew enamored of interactive art exhibits, which led to a determination to bring one to St. Petersburg. Fairgrounds opened in September, 2021.
Mansion, who was recently named the area’s “Artist Laureate” by the Creative Pinellas organization, talks about how the emergent integration of art and technology imbued the recent past with a sense of wonder, and makes the artistic future virtually without limit. #fairgroundsstpete #lizdimmit #stpetecatalyst #billdeyoung #stpete #wada #tampabay #radio #radiostpete
