My fellow artists and I have joined together and created CENTRAL CREATIVE COMMONS, located in the Central-Cocoanut Historic District, in Sarasota, Florida.
CENTRAL-COCOANUT HISTORIC DISTRICT
Central Creative Commons is located in what is known as the Central-Cocoanut Historic District of Sarasota, on the northern fringe of the Rosemary Arts District. You didn’t know about the Central-Cocoanut Historic District? Neither did we until I did some investigative photo-footwork and located these boundary markers. “The district is along Cocoanut Avenue, between 11th and 22nd Streets to the south and north, and between Tamiami Trail and the railroad tracks to the west and east (Wikipedia).” Central-Cocoanut Historic District was designated in 2005.
Many of you are familiar with the two orange and green buildings at 1330-1340 Central Avenue which houses the studios of painters, photographers, mixed-media, sculpture/ceramics, design, and more!
