SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival Announces Title Sponsor for Year 9 & 10
The annual SHINE Mural Festival, produced by the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is proud to announce its first two-year Title Sponsor, REFLECTION St. Pete; a partnership that will culminate with a three-story mural on the façade of the luxury condo building for SHINE’s 10-year milestone in 2024.
Overlooking Mirror Lake, REFLECTION St. Pete is a contemporary residential enclave located a heartbeat away from the pulse of St. Petersburg’s vibrant art districts. With 88 high end residences and ground floor retail, REFLECTION St. Pete will be ready for move in by summer of 2024. Led by local developers, HP Capital Group and brokered by KW Commercial’s Jon Wittner, the team has been eager to integrate and support the arts in their plans. Those involved in the creation of REFLECTION St. Pete are almost exclusively locals who’ve been witness to the rapid growth the city has undergone in more recent years, acknowledging the role the arts have played in St. Pete’s desirability.
“St. Petersburg is a vibrant and growing community due in large part to its commitment to the arts. REFLECTION St. Pete was designed to incorporate the art and character of St. Petersburg into a modern luxury residence. We are excited to be SHINE’s title sponsor for the next two years and make REFLECTION St. Pete a landmark for the living arts in downtown St. Petersburg,” remarked HP Capital Partner Fred Hemmer.
For its ninth year, October 13-22, 2023, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival Presented by Reflection has curated another impressive line-up of mural artists from the Tampa Bay area and beyond. Adding to the city’s diverse collection of outdoor art, SHINE continues to celebrate art in public spaces while elevating the medium of mural art and championing St. Petersburg as an arts destination worldwide.
“This partnership marks an important milestone for SHINE as we move toward plans for the 10thanniversary event,” remarks Jenee Priebe, SHINE Director. “REFLECTION St. Pete’s contribution serves as a model for thoughtful partnerships as the art community strives to maintain the character and uniqueness of St. Pete in the midst of significant growth. Their support will allow us to create more than 25 murals over the next two years.”
SHINE Year 9 will add 14 new murals throughout the art districts plus a series of street art related events, tours, and community Bright Spot projects.
