Artist David Dunleavy to Paint the Largest Environmental Awareness Mural at the Floriday Keys History of Diving Museum, Islamorada, Fla. Keys
Continuing his quest of increased global awareness and public consciousness to the plight of our oceans and their endangered species, David Dunleavy will begin work on another sea life mural, this one to appear on the north and east sides of the new Florida Keys History of Diving Museum in Islamorada. Work will begin on January 24 and last through the first weeks of February. This will be the largest environmental awareness mural in the Keys. Fueled by his determination to make a difference through his art and education, Dunleavy adds to his growing international and world acclaim with his upcoming Keys mural, having recently completed his impressive endangered species mural #34 at the Melbourne Aquarium in Australia in the spring of 2004. Measuring 50 feet high by 300 feet long, it is the largest marine mural on the continent of Australia.
The new museum will be the largest cultural and educational facility or museum of any type in the Upper Keys. Set to occupy a 12,000 sq. ft. building, the museum will open with 3,000 sq. feet of museum galleries and expand over the coming years. Artifacts provided have been donated by Drs. Joseph and Sally Bauer, who hold perhaps the world’s largest collection of historic diving equipment and research documents. The collection displays the evolution and history of diving technology over the years and boasts artifacts and information from all over the world. The museum’s goal is to provide an entertaining venue for sport divers, as well as general visitors with an interest in the underwater world.
Scheduled to join forces with Dunleavy is legendary marine life artist Guy Harvey, Dr. Guy Harvey is best known for his anatomically, color correct marine wildlife art. He is also a marine scientist, underwater diver, photographer, videographer, conservationist and T.V. host. His new T.V. series, “Guy Harvey’s Portraits From the Deep”debuted this year on the Outdoor Life Network and season 2 is currently being filmed.
Dunleavy supports many marine and sea life organizations such as The National Save the Sea Turtle and Oceans for Youth foundations, donating original art for auction and sale to benefit these organizations. During his painting of the Keys History of Diving Museum he will work with several area schools to help the local school children become aware of how everyone can make a difference when it comes to protecting our oceans and its creatures.
