Lealman Mural Projects on Haines Road

Creative Pinellas is excited to announce the Lealman Mural Projects on Haines Road!

OVERVIEW: 

The Lealman Mural Project is a partnership between Creative Pinellas and the Lealman CRA, with a goal to foster community beautification projects that engage the community and represent the rich culture and environment of this developing area.  This project will include a two grants for a single artist at each location on Haines Road in Lealman:
  • Ceramics By Kayla Façade at 5298 Haines Road, Saint Petersburg 33714
    • $3,500 artist fee / up to $1,000 materials and supplies to include the right side of the building including roll up door

The artist must be a Pinellas County based artist or artist with strong ties to Pinellas County. We ask that artists who have created a mural for Creative Pinellas in the last 12 months (Sept 2021- Sept 2022) not apply, as we would like to create as many opportunities for as many artists as possible.

Art Goals:

This is a project created with the idea to bring color and vibrancy to the community and business corridor on Haines Road by bringing in an experienced mural artists with a strong point of view and the ability to create complex, engaging works of art at two private businesses that that bookend the Haines Road block.
The art goal for each location is unique.  For the Ceramics by Kayla location, the art should reflect the vibrant, diverse Lealman community that is embracing art and evoke an inviting, colorful, stylized vibe that could be abstract to realistic.  For the Tommy Todd ‘s Landscape and Design location the art should be inspired by the natural settings that can be found throughout Lealman and celebrate nature and/ or native plants and wildlife of the Florida Gulf Coast that can become a warm and whimsical addition to the Haines Road landscape.
