CLEARWATER’S DOLPHINS, A PUBLIC ART EXHIBITION
DOLPHIN INSTALLATION BEGINS
Clearwater, FL (August 3, 2012) – The Clearwater Regional Chamber, along with support from the City of Clearwater and Clearwater Marine Aquarium, launched a project to artistically showcase the bottlenose dolphin. Installation of the 50 fully decorated dolphins will begin on Monday, August 6 in the afternoon at Pier 60 Park in Clearwater Beach. The creativity and variety of the completed dolphins is incredible.
Each fiberglass dolphin is 6’ tall and weighs 80 pounds. They will be attached to concrete pads. Lighting will be placed so that the dolphins will be viewable after dark.
The tie in with Dolphin Tale and Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Winter, is a natural fit. Plus, with over 50,000 guests visiting the Tampa Bay area for the RNC, it is an ideal time to draw attention to the beautiful beaches and marine life enjoyed by residents and visitors each day. This pod of dolphins will be on exhibit August 6 – September 4, 2012.
