Fish for the Arts Project
Cultural Center of Cape Cod

Kathi was selected for this project, along with 25 other Cape Cod artists. Each artist transformed a 34-inch fiberglass striped bass into their own work of art. She wrote the poem and created her acrylic mixed media “Magical Fish.” Sponsors displayed the fish at their local businesses. The work was then auctioned to raise money for the educational wing of the Cultural Center.

In 2011, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod asked 25 Cape artists to transform a 34-inch fiberglass striped bass into their own work of art. Kathi wrote this poem and created her "Magical Fish".
