Sixth KGIB Litter Prevention Sculpture to be Installed March 13

BRUNSWICK, GA – (February 25, 2019) The sixth litter prevention sculpture of Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s outdoor public art series will be installed on Wednesday, March 13 and the public is invited to participate. The dolphin sculpture will be located near the public fishing pier in Neptune Park on St. Simons Island. A 3:30 pm litter cleanup will take place, with the sculpture installation following at 4:00 pm.

The soon-to-be six sculptures can be found throughout the Golden Isles, located near coastal water bodies to make a connection between land litter and marine debris. Each sculpture features a local coastal critter and is accompanied by educational interpretative signage that details litter and its negative effect on the native species and its habitat. The dolphin joins an already existing Right whale, manatee, pelican, blue heron and shrimp.

The 4:00 pm sculpture installation will allow volunteers to fill the sculpture cavity with collected hard plastic and aluminum just prior to its installation. “The concept is simple,” said King-Badyna. “CLEAN. Volunteers participate in community cleanups. CREATE. Participants fill the sculptures with the collected litter. CELEBRATE. Community members gather to share their efforts and celebrate the sculpture installations that represent a clean and green community.”

The dolphin sculpture is made possible by financial contributions from Starbucks, BB&T and individuals. Jim Swaim, fabricator of all six sculptures, will be on hand for the installation.
