The Lower Gulf Coast Sights

Fodor's Review

The River District has become a haven for independent galleries, and in 2003 Florida Arts, Inc., a nonprofit organization, stepped in to turn an abandoned post office from 1933 into a space for edgy, up-and-coming visual artists, musical acts, films, and theater. Even if your taste runs more to Broadway and Monet than M-Pact and Marcus Jansen, a visit is worthwhile for the neoclassical revival facade: eight towering coral-rock Ionic columns give way to swaths of intricately detailed window screens. The friendly staff is happy to answer questions about the building's history. Renovations of the upper floors have recently been completed. Plan a trip around the first or third Friday every month for Art Walk or Music Walk; the center stays open late for the throngs of passersby.
