About Divas & Dudes

Since 1999, the St. Petersburg-based, 501c3 non-profit Outdoor Arts Foundation has been organizing and executing innovative community arts projects that have received critical acclaim and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for non-profit organizations such as the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Florida Holocaust Museum, Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Save the Manatee Club and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Now following our successful “Herd About Tampa Bay” fiberglass Elephant project during the Republican National Convention, we’re launching our first ever global community art endeavor to raise money and awareness for various AIDS research organizations.

Titled “Divas & Dudes”, the project will feature 36” x 18” fiberglass male and female torso forms that are configured to be mounted on an interior or exterior wall.  The “Divas” and “Dudes” will be decorated by artists from around the globe and displayed at businesses and private residences all over the planet.

Sponsorships start at only $575.00 and include the following benefits:

  1. Ownership of a beautiful, original work of art to display at your home or place of business
  2. Inclusion on the “Divas & Dudes” website (www.divasanddudes.org) and our “Diva & Dude Finder”
  3. Promotion through an aggressive, global social media campaign
  4. Commemorative plaque to be displayed with your “Diva” or “Dude”
  5. Numerous public relations opportunities
  6. A portion of the proceeds from each sponsorship will be donated to help AIDS research
  7. Participation in the first global community arts project of this kind
