Bekky Beukes, the Vitale Bros., Ceilia Lueza and Ya La'Ford are the local artists who will paint the town when SHINE dusts off its dropcloths Oct. 6-14. They'll be joined by artists from across the world.

Internationally, the artists include Miguel Ángel Belinchón Bujes, commonly known as Belin (Spain), Nomad Clan (England), Lars Wunderlich, part of LOOK the Weird (Germany), DAAS (Japan) and Haider Ali (Pakistan). 

National artists who can leave their sweaters at home are Angela Faustina (Georgia), Matthew Hoffman (Illinois), Gibbs Rousavall (Kentucky) and J&S Signs (Oregon).

In early September, SPAA will announce the local artists for the Open Call Walls, three walls held for local muralists only.
