EXPERIENCE ARTS
2019 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Princess Smith

Join us in celebrating the arts in St. Petersburg!

Walk, Ride or Drive!

The Central Arts District, EDGE District, Grand Central District, Warehouse Arts District and downtown Waterfront Arts District unite every second Saturday of the month from *5 PM - 9 PM for this free celebration of the arts. Take the trolley, drive yourself or choose a district to park & walk to your favorite spots or discover new ones!

The annual SHINE® St. Petersburg Mural Festival illuminates the power of art in public spaces by revitalizing areas, inspiring dialogue, and uniting our community—while cultivating new standards of artistic excellence reflecting St. Petersburg's creative and vibrant spirit. By using the walls and streets as canvas, SHINE transforms our shared spaces into a world-class outdoor gallery featuring top contemporary local, national, and international artists. Produced by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, SHINE has created more than 100 murals throughout downtown and the surrounding arts districts since 2015. 

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. Check our calendar to see what’s 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.
