Visit Tube Dude at the 33rd Annual St. Armands Art Festival

Have you been waiting for a chance to meet Tube Dude in person?

The correct answer is “yes, on pins and needles!” Well, we have terrific news then. You’ll finally have the chance to meet the creator of Sarasota’s most innovative hand-crafted metal art at the 33rd Annual St. Armands Circle Art Festival.

Tube Dude will be there at St. Armand’s Circle during the festival weekend, November 12th and 13th.

33rd Annual St. Armands Circle Art Festival

The festival lasts from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, is totally free to the public, and features dozens of fantastic art exhibits. This includes everything from paintings and sculpture to clay pottery and . . . metal art!

Tube Dude has a special entry in the festival, which won’t only turn heads, but will force them upward to check out the enormous Giraffe Tube. This is one of his largest creations yet and may actually tower over all the exhibits. You won’t know, however, unless you come by to see it for yourself.

You’ll also have a chance to meet and chat with Scott Gerber, Tube Dude himself, at the festival. It’ll be a terrific opportunity to learn how he makes hand-crafted metal art, including what inspired the former yacht builder to start an artistic business.
