Seven Gulfport Artists Create Geckos for Charity Auction

Seven Gulfport Artists Create Geckos for Charity Auction


Seven larger-than-life steel geckos will be the centerpiece of a live auction to benefit local charities as well as a public art installation in Gulfport’s Waterfront District.

Each of the large steel geckos has been reimagined, manipulated and decorated in a variety of media by local artists.

The geckos are now on display in locations throughout the Gulfport Waterfront District until Friday, August 23rd and will be up for auction during the fifth annual Gecko Ball on Saturday, August 24th at the historic waterfront Gulfport Casino Ballroom (5500 Shore Blvd. South).

Doors for the event open at 6 p.m. and the party continues until 11 p.m.

Each gecko will be a prized collector’s art piece and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

Organizers initiated the Artists’ Gecko Auction four years ago with much success, and due to its popularity, the auction is now a part of the tradition of annual Gulfport Gecko-related activities in August and September.
