Venus Flytrap on Parade

Island Arts Council is leading an exciting public sculpture project in collaboration with the Carolina Beach Centennial Committee and Town of Carolina Beach to bring artist-painted Venus Flytrap sculptures around our island! April 9th at 4:30 pm at the Carolina Beach Town Hall the community is invited to the project’s official kick-off to see the first salute unveiling and artist meet and greet! 

During 2024 we will have a Call for Artists to provide proposals for their concepts for these 4’ fiberglass statues. Then early 2025 the 15+ statues will be installed for the Centennial Celebration. Selected artists will receive a stipend to paint their statue and a portion of the final selling price when it is auctioned in September 2025.

Come join us for the Kick Off and unveiling of the first statue at the Town Hall on Carolina Beach. Find out more about this exciting project. And how you can be Part of the Arts.
