SHINE brought the global Inside Out art project to St. Petersburg. Created internationally-acclaimed street artist and TED Prize winner JR, this project is turning the world inside out in a big way – using photography as a vehicle for change by literally putting a face to an issue.

Inside Out  showcases and celebrates the creative, vibrant and diverse spirit that lives in the hearts of our citizens, deepens our cultural perspectives and unites our extraordinary community.  

Inside Out St. Pete features up some 300 photographic portraits covering The Factory St. Pete, a new creative facility in the Warehouse Arts District and the future home of the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. These portraits are representative of our rich diverse community.  

Inside Out highlights another medium of street art by using wheat pasting to apply the portraits. This impermanent method is one of the oldest forms of “guerilla-style” street art and in conjunction with the black and white portraits it brings a world-class, must-see installation to St. Petersburg.

Please note: The Inside Out mural helped celebrate the end of SHINE 2019. That location is currently under construction. The mural is visible at a distance through the fence, but you’ll be able to visit again when construction’s finished in Spring 2020.
