Art Explosion: St. Pete

Thanks to the Shine Mural Festival and Second Saturday Art Walk coinciding, St. Petersburg is overflowing with art events this weekend. Here’s a rundown.

Catch a big Shine event Friday at Station House. Reveal: St. Pete Streets uses the many levels of the venue for multiple art exhibits including Shine artists, a fashion installation, live music, popup shops with wearables and a panel discussion on the history of street art. Free. 5 p.m. to midnight. 260 First Ave. S.

Also Friday is Secret Walls, a popular illustration battle that pits two teams of artists against each other to make improvised, collaborative, black and white murals within 90 minutes. Free if you RSVP at dontstop.splashthat.com, $10 at the door. Jannus Live, 200 First Ave. N.

A great way to see all the freshly painted murals is a guided bike tour, arranged through Florida CraftArt. Ride your own bike for $5 or use a Coast Bike Share ride for $25. Tours at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday. floridacraftart.org.

You’ve seen their large scale work, but view the muralists’ smaller art at the Shine Mural Festival Finale Exhibition at the Morean Arts Center. The show also features work from local favorites including Bask, Chad Mize and Palehorse. Remains on display through Oct. 27. 5-9 p.m. Saturday. 719 Central Ave. Free.

An exhibit at the ArtsXchange on Saturday is likely to be powerful. El Sueno Americano is Tom Kiefer’s photographic exhibition that depicts the items undocumented migrants take on their journeys across the border. Reception from 5-9 p.m. Remains on display through Nov. 5. $10, members free.

Also Saturday at ArtsXchange, a group show at Soft Water Studios features work by Bekky Beukes, Melanie Posner, as well as the Vitale Bros. and sculptor Mark Aeling. Sinuousity explores the human form in a variety of media. Reception from 5-9 p.m. 515 22nd St. S, St. Petersburg.
