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.
Splash Like No One is Watching was created by artist Judy Murphy. She can be found dancing outside the Umpqua Discovery Center at 409 Riverfront Way in Reedsport, OR. She is happy to have a view of the Umpqua River.
Originally sponsored by West Coast Auto Body, the Discovery Center is now her permanent home, thanks to a generous donation from Reedsport residents.
