St Petersburg Suffers Huge LossWednesday, November 28 @ 9:50 pm
St Petersburg suffered a huge loss Monday evening when the news came that local artist and philanthropist, BC Woo, had died. Bill Correira (BC) Woo, or “Woo” as his friends called him, was best known as the “fish guy” with his aquatic scenes scattered throughout St Petersburg museums, businesses and homes. Bill was quite possibly best known for his charitable side. Not only did he quickly answer the call to be a part of any event he thought would better his local community, he jumped at the chance to welcome newcomers to the art scene here. He championed events for local charity, Kind Mouse Productions, Inc. and generously painted for the Unchained Gang as part of the event benefitting Cousteau Divers hosted by Bella Brava. He could most certainly be seen as the glue that joined together so many local artists, businesses and causes. The Unchained Gang honors his memory and thanks BC Woo for his immeasurable gift(s) to St Pete.
