About Tampa Bay Tarpon

Following the successes of past fiberglass animal projects such as the Tampa Bay Tour of Turtles and Manatee Menagerie, the Outdoor Arts Foundation has partnered with Tampa Bay Watch to introduce Fins Across Florida, a State-wide endeavor featuring the funkiest fiberglass fish Floridians have ever seen.

The first of these projects will kick off in the Tampa Bay area and feature 6' x 3' fiberglass Tarpon.

The "Fins Across Florida: Tampa Bay Tarpon" project is based on five major principles:

  • To raise awareness and educate the public about Tampa Bay Watch and their   efforts to protect and restore Tampa Bay's estuary.
  • To promote the conscientious businesses who come on board to sponsor “Fins   Across Florida: Tampa Bay Tarpon.”
  • To bring recognition to participating artists and the Tampa Bay art   community.
  • To raise awareness about the Outdoor Arts Foundation and its efforts to   beautify the Tampa Bay Area through creative artistic endeavors.
  • To introduce a fun-filled event for the whole community.

    From 2010 - 2011, “Fins Across Florida: Tampa Bay Tarpon” will consist of approximately 50 uniquely decorated fiberglass Tarpon displayed throughout the Tampa Bay Area.

    Individual Tarpon will be sponsored by local businesses and individuals and decorated by local artists. In November of 2011, all Tarpon will be auctioned off at a gala event at the Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center with proceeds benefiting both Tampa Bay Watch and the Outdoor Arts Foundation (both 501c3 not-for-profit organizations).
