The manatee unveiling took place on May 20th at the 1st National Bank of South Miami. It was a great turnout as everyone came to see these colorful sculptures. It was also an opportunity to see them all in one location before they are placed throughout South Miami. Dignitaries, sponsors, artists and the community enjoyed a night of food, drinks, plus color, color and more color.
A big "Thank You" to fellow artist, and friend, Nancy Martini for blogging about the event and always supporting the arts and artists in our community. To view her blog: http://nancymartini.blogspot.com/2011/05/south-miami-manatee-fest-supports-local.html
