The Grosse Pointe Chamber of Commerce is partnering with local non-profit, Services for Older Citizens, to bring an exciting fundraiser to the east side: GP Fish. Similar to the cow exhibit in Chicago and the Grosse Pointe Frog Event of 2005, the Chamber is actively searching for local artists interested in decorating a fish.
Decorated fish will be unveiled at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House this summer and will remain on display during the Detroit Symphony Orchestra summer concert series there. Throughout August and September, the fish will then be prominently displayed throughout the business districts of Grosse Pointe, followed by a gala auction in October at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club.
This is a fantastic opportunity for local artists to flex their creative muscle while showcasing their work for thousands of local residents, businesses and their clients. Artists interested in participating will need to complete and submit an application and design concept. Applications are due by March 15, 2012. Fish must be completed and ready for display by June 15, 2012. To learn more, or to view and download the application, please visit www.gpfish.net or throw us a line at: 313-881-4722
