Comes with the Territory: Local SHINE Artists
Now in its eighth year, St. Petersburg’s SHINE Mural Festival has become a huge draw for area art lovers. 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 120 murals throughout downtown and the surrounding arts districts since 2015.
The Morean, in partnership with SHINE, invited a selection of this year’s local featured artists to display their work in this exhibition, so that visitors might make the connection between the artists’ mural work and their studio practice.
Beginning October 14th, please see our front desk for a map of this year’s murals. And be sure to follow these artists!
