The new “Cod of a Different Color” creations of local artists are in the 2017 Marblehead Festival of Arts net and you can take a peek.  This might be the best catch yet.  If you’re new to the Cod Auction, here’s the story – between now and July 4th you can visit our special MFoA bidding page online, peruse all the wonderful cod art and when you find the one that is just right for you, make a bid. If you can’t stand the suspense you can make a full price bid and just sit back and pick it up when the Auction ends.  The pics on the website are great, but if you want to see one of your favorites in person just saunter on down to any of the stores listed below and catch your cod in living color and texture.  There is even a cod with an Amazon Dot inside.  Have a good time, its art, its fun and it supports the Festival.
