WOW – thank you to everyone who made our Sea Turtle Scavenger Hunt leading up to ArtsFest 2021 such a phenomenal success! We received so many calls, emails, and social media messages from excited participants and more than 400 people signed up for the new Martin County Arts & Culture Trail in the first week alone!
But if you weren’t able to find one of the teal or gold glass sea turtles – don’t worry!
We have partnered with the Martin County Office of Community Redevelopment to launch another phase to the scavenger hunt program! This time, we’re releasing a limited edition collection of cobalt sea turtles created by local glass artist Dot Galfond of License to Kiln.
The cobalt turtles will only be hidden at the Art in Public Places locations specifically listed in the Arts & Culture Trail and will be hidden gradually until Tuesday, March 2 (ahead of the raffle drawing on March 3 for the grand prizes)! So be sure to sign up for the free trail to know where to search – once you find a turtle, it’s yours to keep!
Speaking of raffles, it’s not too late to purchase some additional raffle tickets in-person or online for a chance to one the Grand Prizes Sea Turtle Bowls. They’re still being sold at the Arts Council office located in the Court House Cultural Center (80 SE Ocean Blvd, Stuart) and at the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center (890 NE Ocean Blvd, Stuart). Or, you can place an online order here. The tickets will cost $5 each or $10 for 3 tickets and the winner will be announced on March 3.
