The Painted Pompano series will be the City of Pompano Beach's first large public art installation. The project consists of 12 five foot tall pompano statues to be placed in various locations throughout the City. Each of the Painted Pompano sculptures has been individualized by artists in a variety of styles and finishes.
On March 23, 2015, the twelve fish sculptures were unveiled. The finished Painted Pompano fish sculptures were also on display at the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival to be held April 24th through the 26th.Keep your eyes on the street for the Painted Pompano and for many new public art projects that will be rolled out in the upcoming years.
