Remember, months ago how I briefly spoke about being selected by Embracing Our Differences to showcase at Sarasota Bay, Florida? Well, here’s a chance to see the piece in it’s outdoor home if you like I, so far have not gotten a chance to see it up close. It comes in at around 2:27 mins.
From April 1-May 28, my billboard along with others will be showing at Island Park, Sarasota Bay, Florida, so please have a chance to see it up close if you haven’t. Just from checking out the video, I’d love to make a trip there myself.
