St. Petersburg Will SHINE with Mural Art
This year’s annual SHINE Festival will take place October 6 through 14 in the Central Arts District in downtown St. Petersburg. This year’s event will showcase new vibrant, creative and inspiring murals in St. Pete created by international, national and local artists. The new pieces will further enrich the city’s public outdoor gallery, adding new styles-from colorful geometric patterns to delicately-rendered realism-all expertly painted on large walls and even on street intersections.
If you want to get the inside scoop on SHINE, you may want to join one of the walking tours are scheduled for every Saturday morning to provide the inside stories behind large scale art. The four-block tour begins at Florida CraftArt, 501 Central Ave., starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 11:30. Call 727-821-7391 or email gallery@FloridaCraftsmen.net to book the tour. A portion of the funds raised goes to fund future murals.
