Made up of local artists and community members, SHINE is an art project, intended to illuminate the power of art in public spaces by revitalizing areas, inspiring dialogue and uniting our community—while cultivating new standards of artistic excellence and reflecting St. Petersburg’s creative and vibrant spirit.
Building off the success of year one, the SHINE Mural Festival once again brightens the streets of St. Petersburg with a curated, open-air museum showcasing large scale murals painted by world-renowned artists. Year 2 featured 19 new murals throughout downtown and the surrounding arts districts.
