Craving More Street Art?

The original idea for this project is called the Float Parade. The concept will be for a group of floating street artists to create a parade of art that will float across Pine Lake Apex, NC all at the same time.

This piece, the floating Deer, was a test run for the Float Parade which we will attempt again in September.

We took the Floating Deer down to the dock at Lake Pine and carefully placed him into the raging water..
Actually, the water was so still that at first it just sat there and didn't move.

After a while though, the wind caught the deer and took him out to sea.

And he went pretty far... however, we had tied him to a saltwater fishing rod and so in the end we reeled him back to the dock.

Hey! It's your biggest fan down here in FL. This looks like such a fun idea. I hope it all comes together. I think “craving” to do something unexpected is a great way to get the community to taste art in a new way.
Please add some more pictures as it comes along.

Good for you!
Give my best.
