Clearwater, FL (July 26, 2012) – The Clearwater Regional Chamber, along with support from Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the City of Clearwater, has launched a project to artistically showcase the bottlenose dolphin.  The pod has grown to 50 dolphins. 


A goal is to highlight the talented local artists as they uniquely decorate upright 6’ tall fiberglass dolphins.  The tie in with Winter and Dolphin Tale is a natural fit.  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 exhibit will take place at Pier 60 Park, Clearwater Beach from August 6 – September 4, 2012. 


A tremendous response has been received from sponsors and artists/art groups.
