Vitale Brothers' latest works debut Friday at St. Pete's Blue Goose

Artistic talent runs deep in the Vitale family, as will be shown in a new display at the Blue Goose in downtown St. Petersburg this Friday. "Murder It" features new work from Johnny, Paul and Joey Vitale, and though the title is a play on the date being Friday the 13th, it could also refer to how the brothers have been killing it with their artwork. All three brothers haven't shown together since their "Family Business" exhibit back in 2008, so the outcome should be exciting.

The Vitale Brothers have had a major presence in St. Petersburg's art scene since the '90s. They held events in various warehouses that combined art, music and fashion long before St. Pete exploded into the arts destination that it has become. Johnny and Paul's murals and signs can be found all over the bay area, including the Blue Goose's logo and the iconic Pier Pressure mural found on the side of that building (taking a picture in front of that one is a must!).

The free opening night event includes on site T-shirt printing by Wove Print Co. and music by DJ Blenda. It starts at 7 p.m. at the Blue Goose, 48 Ninth St. N, St. Petersburg. (727) 201-9690.
