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. See our 'Where are they now' map for their current locations, and check our blog for updates. Share your Dancing Sea Lion pics with us and we'll add them to our Gallery of images.
Portia T. Doodle was created by artist Ruth Bass. Now she can be seen in Yachats on the corner of Hwy 101 and 4th Street, in front of the Yachats Commons building, near where her artist lives. She was purchased by Polly Plum Productions and donated to the City of Yachats, OR.
