SHINE 2022

Returning for its eighth year, October 14-23, 2022, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival will once again ignite the City of the Arts with a diverse collection of public art from renowned local, national and international mural artists. The festival, which has received widespread international attention, is an outdoor art exhibition aimed at celebrating art for art’s sake.  During SHINE, 18 new murals including 3 community Bright Spot murals and 2 painted vehicles will be added to the art districts and surrounding neighborhoods of St. Petersburg’s downtown. Artists will be working throughout the week to complete their mural before the SHINE Grand Finale.

The St. Pete Arts Alliance hosts workshops, classes, talks and special events to bring our arts community together. Many are free – and online events are often recorded for later viewing.

In addition, our members and artist grantees are quite busy in the community. Check our calendar below to see what artsy event you can attend next!

The MUSE Awards are presented by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance to celebrate the artists and art-lovers in our community. 

No stiff tuxes, no boring speeches – it’s a pARTy to uniquely honor the creative individuals who spark St. Petersburg. And a crucial fundraiser for the Arts Alliance’s work. 

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance (SPAA) invites you to our inaugural Garden Party Brunch to celebrate the impact of the arts on the growth of our city. The celebration will promote continued support of programs and resources for local artists and arts institutions that ignite creativity, community, and prosperity.
