The Florida Aquarium unveiled a one-of-a-kind art sculpture today to honor former Aquarium Executive Director and CEO Thom Stork.  The 7-foot tall stainless steel sculpture features a life size stork wearing a bowtie, a Thom Stork trademark.


I was humbled to be able to take part in the unveiling of an incredible statue honoring my father at the Florida Aquarium this week in Tampa. The Aquarium commissioned artist Yeins Gomez for the project and the result took my breath away... a beautiful metal bow-tie wearing Stork standing above his three little Storks calling to mind his three grandchildren. Mr. Gomez was able to capture so much of my father’s spirit and our Stork proudly stands outside near the Children’s play area of the Aquarium.
