Shark Savers and Avant Gallery are pleased to present Art for Sharks Sake a breakthrough collaboration event for art, science and ocean awareness.

This gala fundraising event on January 24th at Avant Gallery in Miami’s South Beach will raise awareness and funds for Shark Savers’ conservation efforts by featuring shark art, film and celebrating the people who help save sharks through artistic representation.

The evening will feature the work of artist Kevin McHugh who is renowned for his opulent shark and sailfish sculptures. Kevin is also a conservationist hoping to transform how people perceive trophy fish. Kevin’s artwork celebrates the beauty of sharks and sailfish while bringing attention to their dwindling populations.

There will also be a showing of the new short film “Legacy – The Words of Peter Benchley” by Shark Savers and the talented 333 Productions. The evening will include cocktails as well as activities with special sponsors, appearances by well-known shark biologists, conservationists and celebrities.

Donations requested at the door and a portion of proceeds to benefit Shark Savers.
