Underwater Museum Of Art To Premiere In June With Seven Sculptures

The first installation of the Underwater Museum of Art in the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast will feature seven sculpture designs beginning in June 2018.

The 2018 Spring/Summer installation will include “Propeller in Motion” by Marek Anthony, “Self Portrait” by Justin Gaffrey, “The Grayt Pineapple” by Rachel Herring, “JYC’s Dream” by Kevin Reilly in collaboration with students from South Walton Montessori School, “SWARA Skull” by Vince Tatum, “Concrete Rope Reef Spheres” by Evelyn Tickle, and “Anamorphous Octopus” by Allison Wickey.

The sculptures will be installed approximately 60 feet/18 meters deep about a mile/1.6 km off Grayton Beach State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. You’ll need to be a certified diver to see them.
