Sunshine Streets: Street Art of St Petersburg, Florida

by douglas reeser on April 17, 2013
Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida has become something of a burgeoning street art and mural scene. Widely known as an arts-friendly city, this small Gulf-coast locale has seven art museums (including the Dali, with the largest collection of Salvador Dali works outside of Spain), a bunch of galleries, and significant city-government and community support. Still, until recently, most of the city's art had to be enjoyed indoors. After a year and half in Belize, I returned to find murals throughout the city, with a special concentration lining a few blocks of a downtown alley. Here are a few of my favorites:

~ Third-Eye Kitty ~
Can see the true you

~ "Only a Paper Moon" ~
Quote from an old-timey poem from 1933 

~ Space is the Place ~
We know these places exist, both within and without.

~ Frida in the Alley ~
A lonely portrait of the great Frida Kahlo

~ Painting with the Sea Creatures ~
Bill Correira Woo Self-Portrait Mural (RIP) 

~ Turtle Face ~
