Brian McAllister, Gibbs High Mural Club and Boys & Girls Clubs members, in progress
The 2019 SHINE Mural Festival welcomed artists from Tampa Bay, from across the US and around the world to create new public art in downtown St. Petersburg.
Highlights include partnerships with Lego artist Jay Hoff and a team of LGBTQ+ volunteers, the Gibbs High Mural Club joining local Boys and Girls Clubs members to adorn the historic Royal Theatre, and internationally-acclaimed street artist and TED Prize winner JR’s collage of diverse St. Pete faces, part of a global project called Inside Out.
Keep an eye out for these new works – and a dozen signal boxes by Tampa Bay artists.
