The Dancing With Sea Lions project began as a fundraiser for the 20th Anniversary of the Florence Events Center. 20 life size sea lion sculptures were each painted by a different artist. All of them were displayed with their sponsors along the Oregon Coast till October of 2016, when they were then purchased by businesses and individuals. 15 of them are still publicly displayed in Florence and near by coastal locations.

FREE full color postcards showing where you can find all the publicly displayed sea lions are available for pick-up at the Florence Events Center, the Siuslaw Public Library, the Florence Visitors Center, Sea Lion Caves, and many other central coast locations. Pick yours up today.
