The evening will feature an exhibit and sale of watercolor paintings of area landmarks by artist Robert Holmes, who has generously donated his work to St. Petersburg Preservation as a fundraiser for the organization.

The Preservation Awards recognize exemplary efforts in historic preservation over a broad range of categories, from adaptive use to residential rehabilitation and recognize those who have enlivened historic spaces which contribute to keeping St. Pete special.
SPP works to foster an appreciation of St. Petersburg’s historic environment by educating the public about local historic resources, landmarking deserving sites and structures, and recognizing the people and business that help achieve this goal.
Historic Homes Workshop is the presenting sponsor of the St. Petersburg Preservations Awards. We also would like to thank Myers Antiques and Fine Art for their support as well as Joe and Robin Reed and the Stafford-Miranda Family.
