SHINE Mural Festival has put out a bat signal to fill the last open spot for a St. Pete muralist to join this year's event, which runs from October 18-26. 

SHINE is an art project produced by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, with a mission to cultivate public art in order to revitalize areas and create dialogue throughout St. Pete neighborhoods. The hope is to unite the community through colorful and inclusive imagery while nurturing St. Petersburg’s creative spirit. 

Qualified applicants must be 18 years of age or older and live or work in the greater St. Pete region.

Artists who are chosen to participate in the festival will be provided with paint, supplies and a $1,000 stipend provided by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. 

If you are interested in applying to be the final muralist selected, you must be a St. Pete artist, start an application, and submit your concept sketch before midnight on Wednesday, July 24. 

The winner will be notified on or around August 1. For more information, email Chad Mize at [email protected]
