SHINE OPENING EVENT
Opening Block Party for the 2016 SHINE Mural Festival, including live art, music, food and group art exhibition.
This year’s SHINE Mural Festival rolls out by painting the streets, literally. Renowned local artist Cecilia Lueza will lead a team of volunteers to transform the intersection at Central Ave & 5th St. into a piece titled “Common Ground”; a vibrant street-level mural symbolizing the diverse backgrounds and creativity of artists who find inspiration and meaning in the city.
Florida-based artist Cecilia Lueza creates vibrant public art pieces in a varying range of artistic mediums. Since 2000 she has been working on a variety of site specific art projects and public art projects in many cities throughout the United States. She has proven experience in design concept, fabrication and installation of large-scale interior and exterior artworks.
CREATIVE BLOCK POP-UP EXHIBITION
Adding to the occasion, a truly unique pop-up art exhibition will be on display during “Creative Block” – converting 15 coolers into unique works of art; created by some of Tampa Bay’s most prominent and emerging talent.
