In honor of the city’s 50th anniversary, a group of Gulf Breeze citizens commissioned public art sculptures at several of the city’s popular parks. Public art contributes to our community’s identity and fosters a sense of whimsy with a mix of mediums including ceramics, metal and lights.
Fundraising efforts were helmed by Dr. Steve Zieman and a citizen committee. Notable sponsors include the Levin family, Murdoch family and Cleveland family, to name just a few. No taxpayer money is used for the purchase of Public Art.
