Show up for the April 11 RBCA community meeting and we will reward you with a special treat!

Rather soon, over 20 Orcas will grace various public spots in Richmond Beach, in the form of creative renditions by local artists. Your reward for attendance at the April RBCA meeting is a first-ever peek at some of the completed art pieces.

To be more specific, four local artists in our Beach Orca public art project will be on hand with their completed art piece for your viewing pleasure. The artists will talk about the process each of them used to embellish their art piece, as well as the artistic message they convey through their completed art. Following the presentations, there will be a Q and A discussion among artists and community members.

In addition to the dialogue with artists, community members in attendance will hear Eric Friedli, the City of Shoreline Director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources, talk about the goals for public art in Shoreline and how the Richmond Beach public art project fits into these goals. Plus he will highlight for you about 25 pieces of public art already in place across Shoreline.

Last but not least, Alisa Lemire Brooks, Orca Network’s Whale Sighting Network Coordinator, will join us to talk about the role of their network in raising awareness about the whales of our region and the importance of providing them healthy and safe environments.
