MAP: See where in San Marcos the mermaid statues are going


San Marcos City Council members on March 6 approved the final locations for the mermaid statues that will form the Mermaid March, a public art project that places mermaid sculptures around the city.

Designed and produced locally by The Fountain People, the mermaid statues stand at 7 feet tall and are made of fiberglass.

The mermaids will be on display for at least two years, according to the San Marcos Arts Commission.

Artists received stipends to create the statues, which the arts commission said had to be “original, vibrant, humorous and uplifting in nature.”
