Clearwater to showcase dolphins at public art exhibition

Clearwater, Florida -- A public art exhibition of decorated dolphins will showcase the beach and marine life enjoyed by locals and visitors during the Republican National Convention.

"A goal is to highlight the talented local artists as they uniquely decorate upright 6 foot tall fiberglass dolphins," the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce announced Wednesday. "The tie in with Winter and 'Dolphin Tail' is a natural fit."

The chamber said the RNC's estimated 50,000 visitors made it an ideal time to draw attention to the area's beaches and marine life.

The exhibit, launched by the Regional Chamber with support from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the City of Clearwater, will be held at Pier 60 Park on Clearwater Beach from Aug. 6 through Sept. 4.
