At the end of September, the City of Coral Gables will say arrivederci to Venice in the Gables’ thirty-three, eight-foot-tall replicas of Venetian mooring posts resembling the picturesque canal posts for the gondolas of Venice. To commemorate the success of the temporary art exhibit, the City of Coral Gables will host a live auction on the Coral Gables Museum Plaza. Over 15 Venetian posts designed and hand-painted by area artists are available with proceeds benefiting area charities. Auction will be held courtesy of Jim Gall, three-time Florida State Champion auctioneer with opening bids starting at $3,500 for posts that haven’t been purchased by a sponsor. Free event with light bites and beverages. Come peruse a collection of these eye-catching posts in one location.
