|Marine-themed Public Art Captivates Surfside
The Turtles of Surfside are Here!
The Town of Surfside, through the Tourist Board and Resort Tax funding, has contracted Prince Media Development to produce a public art event custom made for our beachside oasis. The public art event now decorates the Town and will for more than a year. The subject is the beloved loggerhead turtle - with a twist.
The Surfside turtles have been painted in bright colors and exciting themes. The sculptures are 5-feet high with a 4-foot flipper span, extending a warm embrace and cheerful smile to all who engage them.
A "Call to Artists" was distributed to South Florida emphasizing local participation - especially Surfside artists - and they have beautifully decorated the statues. Artists include Jackie Roche, Marcy Grosso, Dania Sierra, Puchi Noriega, Nancy Martini, Johanna Boccardo, Trish Jesselli and Marcie Ziv.
The public art event has beautified and reinvigorated the Town. Look for The Turtles on the street corners of Surfside.
