Art Goals

The South Pasadena Mural Project is a collaborative initiative designed to create visually appealing spaces that inspire, captivate, and showcase the distinctive qualities that make South Pasadena special while enhancing the aesthetics of the commercial corridor. The objective is to encourage people to pause, admire remarkable murals, and discover what South Pasadena has to offer both residents and visitors, instilling a sense of pride in the local community and businesses.

Artists who applied for the first South Pasadena mural round are encouraged to apply for this second round. Artists will need to fill out a new application.

Artists will have an opportunity to meet with Creative Pinellas and participating Partners to learn about the project and to ask any questions they may have during the application period via an online meeting platform.
