Sharks in Chatham

There will be shark sightings in Chatham this year. Instead of the beach you will find them in the park! Sharks created by various area artists will be moved to various locations in Chatham this summer.  Barbara and daughter Georgia, both artists and longtime summer residents, were asked to help create the public art event.

It’s all in the eye of the beholder…when these great white’s swam into the Tatutina Studio, Barbara and Georgia knew they would be leaving quite different!

An auction on August 1st will allow you to bid on purchasing each shark sculpture. Proceeds from the auction will go to development of the Chatham Shark and Marine Life Research Center Foundation.
