2017 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Jujmo

Deadline: February 4

Do you have the post-holiday blues? Then let’s revive Halloween in February! Yes, Valentwe’en is back for its 9th year in 2023! This year’s theme: “Kiss of Death” featuring another favorite otherworldly creature: the seductive, powerful and alluring vampire!

Artists may interpret the theme as they see fit -- bats, bites, lips, kisses, and all manner of supernatural interactions that fit the theme are welcome! To keep things simple, there is a $5 per piece entry fee to create an award amount to be split between two award winners: People’s Choice (done during the opening reception) and the Most SPIRITed (chosen by the event sponsor, the paranormal investigation team members of the SPIRITS of St. Petersburg). All sales are direct to artist with no commission taken.

The opening reception is during the Second Saturday Art Walk on Feb. 11, from 5 – 9 PM. Free and open to the public.

To apply, contact Brandy Stark at by Jan. 31st. Art drop off is by appointment (days other than Tuesday/Thursday/Friday are open) from Jan. 28 to Feb. 5. Art pick up is by appointment March 1 – 4. Including piece title, medium, size, cost, and an image or description of idea.
