Event description: Enjoy a display of imaginative handcrafted lighthouses ? and then vote for your favorite. Your votes determine the winners of this exhibit, which will present 24 large model lighthouses throughout the aquarium galleries. The lighthouses will be the creations of regional artists, crafts people and just folks with an idea. Some entries come in as scale models of real lighthouses. Others will be wildly creative. The lighthouse that gets the most visitor votes will win $1,500. Other prizes to be announced in a special evening reception on Jan. 23 are: $750 for second place, $375 for third; $300 for fourth; $225 for fifth; and $150 for sixth. Lighthouses must be 3 to 6 feet tall and have a working light ? Beyond that, it's up to the creators' imaginations. (Prohibited are animal remains, including shells.) November 16-January 20, 2014.
