The Gator In The Bay is an international sensation - the purpose of the project was to raise awareness for the Florida Everglades, and the purpose of the art is to show the cooperation between Industry & Nature. The media coverage for Gator In The Bay is beyond the norm, anyone who is anybody within the art world and art circuit is following the project every step of the way.
The world's largest Gator is invading Art Basel Miami with a five day spectacular event beginning on Dec.1, 2o13 with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Las Olas Riverfront in Fort Lauderdale with Mayor Jack Seiler at 5pm. From this point the Gator will be traveling down New River through the Intracoastal Waterway and toward the Miami Yacht Club. At which time the Miami Yacht Club will be having an additional Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Dec.3 at 3pm. with City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and City of Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrerra Bower. On Dec.4 from 8am-10pm the Gator In The Bay will be open for public viewing while the Floating Art Tiles are displayed on the shoreline of the Miami Yacht Club. The next day on Dec.5, the tiles will be assembled to the head of the Gator and float on Biscayne Bay at the Miami Yacht Club, with the exception of the last two tiles (1o3 & 1o4). The lighting of the Gator will take place on Dec.6 and the remaining two tiles will be assembled to complete the Gator for the lighting phenomenon. Then on Dec.7, Gator In The Bay 'swims' towards Downtown Miami and back to the Miami Yacht Club for celebration activities. Dec. 8 will be the last day to see the Gator In The Bay assembled, the Floating Art Tiles will be disassembled at 6pm. and prepared for sale.
