You’ve seen them all over Norfolk, decorated with many creative and unique designs; each representing something symbolic of its location. Norfolk’s mermaids add a sense of beauty, art, and city-pride. Suburban Acres is launching an initiative to embellish our neighborhood with one of these beautiful icons of a great city!
In your evening stroll through the neighborhood, you’ve probably noticed the three-foot 2D mermaid awarded to the ‘Yard of the Month’. It was crafted by Suburban Acres’ own Jack Sanderling, and beautifully hand painted by Chris Alexander.
Now imagine a full-sized 3D Norfolk Mermaid representing our lovely neighborhood!
Stay tuned for announcements regarding 1) fund raisers to purchase the mermaid, 2) location designation, and 3) a contest for the design idea.
The initial fund raiser is by way of the 1st Annual SACL Golf Tournament in October. All proceeds will go toward the project. Donations from our community are also being accepted for the mermaid fund. Checks can be made to ‘Suburban Acres Civic League’, with ‘Mermaid Fund’ in the memo. Contact Bruce Larson for details.
