New street mural adds color and vibrancy to campus

By Cliff McBride, University Communications and Marketing

For nine years, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival has added creativity, vibrancy and color to the city’s landscape. The festival brings together a collection of artists to paint diverse murals on buildings and streets to showcase the power of art in revitalizing public spaces and creating dialogue. For the third time, USF St. Petersburg was one of the festival's sites. 

Jay Giroux, a visiting faculty member in USF’s Graphic Arts Program, and 10 Graphic Design students painted a street mural at the intersection of 2nd Street and 6th Avenue South outside of the University Student Center. Titled “Fluid Structures,” the mural melds geometric figures with an imaginative marine ecosystem setting to evoke the allure of the oceans. 

The project was sponsored by David and Rebecca Ramsey.
