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 38 dolphins, each sponsored by various local businesses and organizations. This project will highlight the talented local artists as they uniquely decorate these upright 6′ tall fiberglass dolphins. Frenchy’s has sponsored one of the dolphins and commissioned local artist Kumpa Tawornprom to paint it.
The tie in with Winter and Dolphin Tale is a natural fit. With over 50,000 guests visiting the Tampa Bay area for the Republican National Convention, 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. Don’t miss your chance to come out to view this exciting exhibit and to see our finished product!
