Returning for its eighth year, October 14-23, 2022, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival once again ignited the City of the Arts with a diverse collection of public art from renowned local, national and international mural artists. The festival, which has received widespread international attention, is an outdoor art exhibition aimed at celebrating art for art’s sake. During SHINE, 18 new murals including 3 community Bright Spot murals and 2 painted vehicles were added to the art districts and surrounding neighborhoods of St. Petersburg’s downtown. Artists worked working throughout the week to complete their mural before the SHINE Grand Finale.
