Color Wheelz,, in partnership with Polaris Slingshot
Local artist Amy Ilic-Volpe will transform the three-wheeled vehicle with her stunning bright colors and patterns. The one-of-a-kind Slingshot can be seen at various SHINE events including the Carmada Street Carnival on October 15 and the SHINE Finale on October 22. Known widely for its stand-out styling, the Polaris Slingshot is often viewed as a blank canvas, as many owners customize their ride and utilize it as a vehicle of self-expression. With a notable owner’s community in St. Pete and a commitment to the arts, SHINE is proud to partner with Polaris Slingshot for the second straight year.
