The SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival Returns October 6-14, 2018

St. Petersburg, FL — Bringing more than a dozen new murals and artful Bright Spots to our City of the Arts, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival, returns for its fourth year October 6-14, 2018 showcasing colorful and inspiring public murals by a diverse group of mural artists from around the world.

The festival, which has received widespread international media, is an outdoor art exhibition built in partnership between local artists and community members. SHINE illuminates the power of art in public spaces; revitalizing areas, inspiring dialogue, and uniting the St. Petersburg community.

International and local artists are now being invited to add new murals to St. Petersburg. Over the past three years 50 artful murals have been added to the landscape. Narrated stories behind the first two years of Shine murals and other may be listened to on the Arts Alliance website at

Produced by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, SHINE continues to innovate and inspire in 2018, all while cultivating new standards of artistic excellence and reflecting the region’s intensely creative spirit. To learn more about this year’s festival, please visit
