South Haven Center for the Arts

Tales of the Sea is an art exhibition revolving around aquatic life of a mythical or fantastic nature. We invite our visitors to come and enjoy our wonderfully diverse selection of fantastic artwork from around the globe!

This exhibition explores our connection to mythical and fantastic life aquatic. It features paintings, sculpture, drawings and costumes of exotic mermaids, sea gods, pirates, and fantasy sea creatures from around the world.

Mermaid MegaFest PASS holders are invited to enjoy a private showing of the Tales of the Sea Exhibition, while enjoying enlightening conversation with local artists.  Speakers from the Eco-Action Conference will also be sharing insights about the impact arts can make toward protecting our environment.

VIP ticket holders are invited to extend their visit for a special celebrity mermaids reception.
