SAFETY HARBOR – A flock of artistically painted plastic yard flamingos will come to roost at the Safety Harbor Public Library, 101 Second St. N. throughout the month of July. They are an eye-catching way to help remind homeowners to “skip the fertilizer” in the summer to protect the waterways that make living here so much fun.

Entitled, “The Art of Being Floridian,” the whimsical traveling exhibit features 24 plastic flamingos painted by 20 artists from the region. Each flamingo has its own name, which corresponds to its colorful personality. The flock includes two birds painted by Safety Harbor artists, Kiaralinda (Green-Envy) and Stacy Roth (Lucinda.)

The plastic pink yard flamingo is the iconic mascot of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program’s Be Floridian campaign, which supports local fertilizer laws in Manatee and Pinellas counties and the city of Tampa. These laws ban nitrogen fertilizer from June through September to prevent harmful pollution from washing into Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico during the rainy summers.

The display will last through Thursday, July 31 and can be viewed during regular library hours. The exhibit will then move to the Oldsmar Library for the month of August and will continue to make appearances through June 2015 at various art centers, libraries, museums and other venues in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Manatee counties.
