Okaloosa Public Arts (OPA) is proud to continue the Emerald Coast Heron Project.
If you are interested in sponsoring a heron, keep reading!
Cost to sponsor a heron is $2500 plus the agreement to provide 3’x3’ concrete base and install using OPA recommended anchor and bolt system. Heron must be installed in an outside area available to the public.
If you would like to be an Emerald Coast Heron Sponsor, please use the online form below.
We will keep your information on file until we are ready to order; deadline to sponsor is currently extended; we will notify interested parties when we are ready to send out another round. We will contact you at that time and will require a $1,000 deposit to be collected at the time the herons are ordered.
Benefits to a Sponsor:
A Heron Hunt guide-map will be available to reveal the location of each heron and also list information about the artist and the sponsor. Information on the sponsor/business will be showcased on the OPA Web site and Facebook page. Sponsors will be supporting local artists and have a beautiful heron on display, attracting more visitors.
OPA’s Responsibility to Sponsor:
OPA will provide a list of artists with samples of work. Sponsor can choose an artist to work with on their design. OPA will approve the final design to ensure it is family friendly. Herons installed outdoors at a business location will have an outdoor plaque provided by OPA noting the Heron Name, Artist Name, Sponsor or Business Name and Year. We will include your heron information on our website and map.
