3+ Reasons Why You’ll Love Modern Optics’ New Location
Modern Optics has always been at the corner of fashion and fun. And now we’ve made the move to a location that fits that perfectly. Modern Optics is now part of St Pete’s exciting Grand Central District. If you haven't been to this funky area in a while you need to make the trip.
SHINE Mural Festival
The SHINE Mural Festival is held this year from October 18th through the 26th. As its website explains, “SHINE is an art project that illuminates the power of art in public spaces by revitalizing areas, inspiring dialogue and uniting our community—while cultivating new standards of artistic excellence and reflecting St. Petersburg’s creative and vibrant spirit.” It’s also incredibly beautiful and our optic shop is in the middle of it!
Speaking of these gorgeous murals, you can download a map and explore them on foot or see some of them online as part of a virtual tour. While you can appreciate their beauty from the comfort of your internet connection, they are best enjoyed up close so you can have a full appreciation for the colors and scale of the artist’s undertaking.
