Avant Gallery and Shark Savers Present:
Art for Sharks Sake
An art, film and ocean awareness gala event
Shark Savers and Avant Gallery are pleased to present Art for Sharks Sake, a breakthrough collaboration event for art, science and ocean awareness.
Join us on January 24th at Avant Gallery in Miami’s South Beach to raise awareness and funds for Shark Savers’ conservation efforts.
The evening will feature the work of artist Kevin McHugh, a conservationist renowned for his opulent shark and sailfish sculptures, who is hoping to change the way people perceive trophy fish. Kevin’s artwork celebrates the beauty of sharks and sailfish while bringing attention to their dwindling populations.
A third of all shark species are threatened or near threatened with extinction with some shark populations depleted by as much as 90-99%. Shark conservation is vital to maintaining healthy reef and ocean ecosystems. Florida tourism, local dive and travel commerce all depend on maintaining this vital component of marine biodiversity. Shark Savers’ programs help shark populations at risk around the world.
The evening will include cocktails as well as activities with special sponsors and appearances by shark biologists, conservationists and celebrities.
Join us to celebrate the sharks!
