The City of Coral Gables Bids Farewell to Venice in the Gables, a Public Art Initiative, with a Live Auction Event Ciao, bella! 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. The Auction will be held courtesy of Jim Gall, three-time Florida State Champion auctioneer with opening bids starting at $3,500. This is an opportunity to peruse a collection of these eye-catching posts in one location. The installation has run through the summer months throughout the City Beatiful to celebrate the new streetscape projects and downtown area.
