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. The pod has grown to 195 dolphins.
The goal is to highlight the talented local artists as they uniquely decorate upright 6’ tall resin/fiberglass dolphins. The tie in with Winter and Dolphin Tale is a natural fit. Originally started to showcase the beautiful beaches and marine life enjoyed by residents and visitors each day to the RNC attendees, the exhibit has grown into a public art project that spans Clearwater, Pinellas County, and beyond. Dolphin sponsors have chosen where they want to display their dolphin or if they want to donate their dolphin.
