These dolphins and turtles will stand on the sidewalks for months before being auctioned off to the highest bidder.  A gala dinner in the spring 2014 at the Venice Yacht Club will be the site of the fund raising program for the  Venice Art Center.

What a great project and it is always fun to see how creative artists can be.   Hopefully the money raised is going to a good cause for Venice FL.

Hi Cindy, in 2005 they had the pigs in paradise raised funds for the Venice Art Center building and endowment. This is the 2nd fund raising program for the same cause.

Very good idea for Venice, FL, Kwee.  A great way to showcase art as well as the town and raise some money all with the same event.

Hi Kwee, I just passed near you as I flew out of Miami. This art festival looks like a lot of fun especially the store with the purses and dolphins.
