Art in Public Spaces: From 1930 WPA Murals to 2015 SHINE St. Petersburg
August 4, 2016, 6:00pm - August 4, 2016, 7:30pm
The public art movement is booming in the 'Burg, highlighted this past year by SHINE St. Petersburg, the mural festival that put the spotlight on the power of art in public spaces and will continue in September 2016.
Our speakers include Palehorse (Chris Parks), a talented St. Pete muralist known internationally, who will offer an artist's perspective on the 'Burg's present boom and the role of public mural art.
Public art and what is appropriate to display made a "buzz" in St. Pete long before the present wave of murals, much of that buzz centered around artist George Snow Hill. His large murals depicting the history of flight found in the Tampa Airport as well as murals in St. Petersburg City Hall. The "buzz" his artwork created was centered around two other murals - depicting women in bathing suits and also "Picnicking at Pass-a-Grille", a mural hung in St. Pete City Hall in 1945 and ripped off the wall in 1966 by Joe Waller (Omali Yeshitela). Diane Craig, an expert on the life and work of George Snow Hill, will present on these works.
Reception with light food & cash bar starting at 6:00 pm.
Short tours of nearby murals led by Florida CraftArt President Kathryn Howd ( tours offered during the reception).
The program will start at 7:00 pm in the recently renovated St. Petersburg Opera building - built in 1952, it's a structure that has served a variety of uses over the years.
Tickets $5 for SPP members; $10 for non-members
Thanks to our generous Keep St. Pete Special program series sponsor, The Mesimer Team of Keller Williams St. Pete Realty

Officer Rodney Tower talked to over 500 people last night about what they should do during an Active Shooter situation.
Here are some tips that he shared with them:
Avoid - Deny - Defend
During an act of violence (e.g. robbery, hostage situation, workplace violence, active shooter):
AVOID starts with your state of mind.
• Pay attention to your surroundings.
• Have an exit plan.
• Move away from the source of the threat as quickly as possible.
• The more distance and barriers between you and the threat, the better.
DENY when getting away is difficult or maybe even impossible.
• Keep distance between you and the source.
• Create barriers to prevent or slow down a threat from getting to you.
• Turn the lights off.
• Remain out of sight and quiet by hiding behind large objects and silence your phone.
DEFEND because you have the right to protect yourself.
• If you cannot Avoid or Deny be prepared to defend yourself.
• Be aggressive and committed to your actions.
• Do not fight fairly. THIS IS ABOUT SURVIVAL.
CALL 911 when you are in a safe area.
When Law Enforcement arrives, SHOW YOUR HANDS AND FOLLOW COMMANDS.
Remember that Failure to Plan is Planning to Fail.
