Bringing more than a dozen new murals and vibrant special events to our City of the Arts, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival returns for its second year September 1 – 10, 2016, showcasing colorful and inspiring public murals by a diverse group of artists from around the world.

The festival, which received widespread media accolades in its first year, is a non-profit public art project built in partnership between local artists and community members. SHINE illuminates the power of art in public spaces by revitalizing areas, inspiring dialogue, and uniting the St. Petersburg community.

The final touch ups on #CeciliaLueza’s #CommonGround at Central Ave and 5th St are complete and it looks brilliant! #shineonstpete

Earlier in the month, as the last layers were added and 15 minutes before the road was scheduled to be reopened, the rain came and washed away a little bit of our shine. This morning starting at 4AM, Cecilia and a tireless team of volunteers went back out to make the final touch ups to this historic project. Bravo team and thanks for reminding us that a job worth doing is worth doing well! SHINE on! #sunshineshere
