The sixth annual SHINE St. Pete Mural Festival will take place November 7-14th, 2020.
This year's festival will expand SHINE's partnership with PangeaSeed Foundation's Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans program to present Sea Walls: St. Petersburg. The artist lineup will focus entirely on Florida-based artists with an emphasis on Tampa Bay muralists, who are the backbone of SHINE and make St. Petersburg pulse all year long. Invited artists will be announced in September.
Building on last year's collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), all 10 new murals will explore the interconnectedness of human health and environmental health as we navigate an ongoing global pandemic. The economic and social devastation experienced worldwide is juxtaposed with cleaner air, clearer waters and newfound focus on the importance of human and animal interaction.
Other highlights of Sea Walls: St. Petersburg include virtual events and a "Bright Spot" mural collaborating with local youth to educate and inspire. Follow facebook.com/shineonstpete for developing news.
