Coconut Grove peacocks will get new homes

Coconut Grove’s dashing peacocks will find new homes on March 16 at the Peacock Auction at Paragon Theater in Cocowalk.

“The Peacock Project has become a piece of Grove history,” said Heather Bettner, Director of the Coconut Grove Peacock Tour and Auction. Through the Peacock Project, Bettner sought to introduce public art to the Coconut Grove community. The Coconut Grove Peacock Tour is a collaborative project directed by Bettner that situates the painted birds on the streets of Coconut Grove from US-1 to Grand Avenue.

In an effort to bring much needed funding to several local non-profit organizations, 17 of the 23 peacocks will be auctioned.
