The SHINE Mural Tour, in collaboration with Star Trolley®, offers a unique and engaging 2.5-hour journey through the vibrant streets of St. Petersburg, Florida. This tour highlights the city's transformation into an exceptional outdoor gallery, thanks to the SHINE® Mural Festival. Since its inception in 2015 by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, the festival has played a pivotal role in revitalizing neighborhoods and fostering community unity through the medium of street art.
On this tour, passengers will board a white, vintage style, open-air Star Trolley® to explore numerous murals crafted by renowned local, national, and international artists. The journey provides an insightful look into the city's art scene, narrated by expert guides who share the stories and inspirations behind these dynamic artworks. The collaboration between Star Trolley® and the SHINE Mural Festival not only celebrates art but also supports the creation of future murals, as a portion of the tour proceeds funds the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance.
The experience includes a complimentary craft beer at Bayboro Brewing, a local brewery emblematic of St. Petersburg's flourishing artisanal culture. This partnership enhances the tour by combining art, community, and local craftsmanship.
St. Petersburg is famous for its murals, with more than 600 adorning various outdoor surfaces, a movement that gained momentum when the city embraced street art almost a decade ago.
During the 2023 SHINE festival, 14 new murals were added, along with several community mural projects, enhancing the artistic landscape of St. Petersburg's downtown and surrounding neighborhoods.
The SHINE® Mural Festival is the first in the world to have an accessible audio tour and the technology to instantly connect mural viewers to online content via PixelStix.
The SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival has been delivering new life to public spaces through art. It revitalizes areas, fosters dialogue, and unites the community, setting high standards of artistic excellence reflective of the city's creative spirit.
