Melody Kiper, Savannah School of Art grad, designed the catfish sculpture that will be used across the city in a benefit for Volunteers for Youth Justice, says Susan Stafford.
The 5 foot-long fish will be painted in divers designs by artists and displayed in numerous locations 'round the city. Similar benefits have been built around sculpted horses and cows.
The fish will leap into public view the summer of 08, says the site katfish4kids.com. At that site artists and potential sponsors will find their guidelines. Background on the Volunteers for Youth Justice program will be found at vyjla.org.
