“Be Floridian” Campaign Is Looking For Artists To Decorate Flamingos At Home Or At A Painting Party In The Artists’ Nook Studio Jan. 17 And 23. The Flock Debuts At Martin ArtsFest 2019 On February 9 & 10

Stuart Art Supply, Martin County Public Works, The Marine Resources Council, and the Arts Council of Martin County are looking for artists to dress up a flamingo.  The flamingos will travel throughout the County to bring awareness to the plight of our water system due to the use of fertilizers during our rainy season, from May through October.  We need your help to give Flo and her friends a make-over!  The flamingos are free and there will be opportunities to join in Painting Parties, where the materials are free.  Or, you can decorate the flamingo in your own studio.  The flock begins its journey at ArtsFest 2019 February 9 & 10. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!  Free – but you MUST register! The Rickie Report is proud to support this effort!
