Something Fishy was a community wide art installation of life sized sailfish sculptures on exhibit in public areas in Fort Lauderdale. The Galleria and the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale sponsored the event in the Spring of 2004 to create art awareness in the community, increase civic pride and promote tourism. Sailfish sponsors chose their designs from a portfolio of artist sketches. The sailfish are constructed of fiberglass and attached to the base with a steel reinforcement. The sponsor for Caribbean Coexistence - a design based on the New Jerusalem paintings - was Burkes and Associates. It can be seen on display in their corporate offices.




"Caribbean Coexistence" Sailfish design after the City of God constructivist cityscapes promoting balance between Christinanity, Judaism, and Islam. Note that from far away the colors and the design look like the natural camouflage of the sailfish.
