Elephant Parade USA - #DanaPoint #OpenAir #Art #fieldtrip
On August 23rd, 2013 thirty elephants arrived to Dana Point, California to bring awareness to endangered Asian elephant. These pieces of art will be on display for 10 weeks throughout Dana Point, Ca. This is an amazing open air art exhibit that is open to the public. All the elephants are painted by well-known artists and celebrities. Each one is very unique and adorable. Once you spot one you will want to find them all and photograph them.
Out of (30) elephants I was able to capture (5) five on my visit. This one by Laura Inkster-Gabor titled "Zia Skye" caught my eye. The colors are bright and evoke a feeling of sunshine. The California theme on the elephant did make me favorite it just a little more than the others. Standing there I looked into the eyes of the elephant and it made me feel as though it had so much to tell. The eyes bring this piece of art to life. It's in the eyes.
November 17th, 2013 will be the last opportunity to see them up close. I recommend that you start on the corner of Island and Dana in the city of Dana Point. Art is such an important part of life and this a great opportunity to experience it. For more information, please go to My Dana Point or Elephant Parade.
