2019 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Princess Smith

Join us in celebrating the arts in St. Petersburg!

Walk, Drive or Take the Trolley!

After almost 2 ½ years, a pandemic and a driver shortage, the St. Pete Arts Alliance (SPAA) has contracted with Star Trolley to reinstate trolley service for patrons of St. Pete’s Second Saturday ArtWalk.  Beginning Saturday, July 9, 2022, a branded white trolley will be moving art enthusiasts around to over 40 ArtWalk venues from 5-9pm.  (The Waterfront District galleries can be seen by using the FREE Downtown Looper, which runs every 15 minutes.)

SHINE 2022

The SHINE® St. Petersburg Mural Festival returns for its eighth year, October 14-23, 2022. The internationally recognized street art festival will bring 17 new murals to the art districts and surrounding neighborhoods of St. Petersburg’s downtown. The curated event features some of the most highly respected local, national, and international muralists. The artists are given full creative expression to use the walls as canvas, illuminating the power of art in public spaces.  

The St. Pete Arts Alliance hosts workshops, classes, talks and special events to bring our arts community together. Many are free – and online events are often recorded for later viewing. Check our calendar to see what’s next. 

The MUSE Awards are presented by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance to celebrate the artists and art-lovers in our community. 

No stiff tuxes, no boring speeches – it’s a pARTy to uniquely honor the creative individuals who spark St. Petersburg. And a crucial fundraiser for the Arts Alliance’s work. 

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance (SPAA) invites you to our inaugural Garden Party Brunch to celebrate the impact of the arts on the growth of our city. The celebration will promote continued support of programs and resources for local artists and arts institutions that ignite creativity, community, and prosperity.
