Here are the top three stories in Dunedin today:

1. Dunedin Public Library is hosting “Tiny Art Afternoon” on July 7 at 11:00 a.m. Participants will have the chance to create “mini-art” on miniature ocean-themed canvases. The design will be pre-sketched and all art supplies will be provided. The paintings will be on display in the library for one month, after which they can be picked up. Those interested can drop by the library reference desk or call 727-298-3080 ext: 1707 to register. (Dunedin GovDunedin Gov)
2. A chef from Dunedin will participate in the seventh annual Epic Chef event to benefit Feeding Tampa Bay. Chef Steven Capone of the HEW Parlor & Chophouse at the Fenway Hotel will participate on the first day of the competition. Participants are given a mystery box of unlikely ingredients chosen by a child from the Boys & Girls Club and are challenged to create a unique and tasty meal in front of a live audience. The event is scheduled for July 18, July 25 and August 1 in the Epicurean Kitchen at the Epicurean Hotel in Tampa. While tickets are sold out, the event will be streamed live in the hotel lobby and on YouTube at 6:45 p.m. (Dunedin Patch | Feeding Tampa Bay YouTube)
3. Dunedin Tide will host a Piping & Drumming College next week, which includes several family events for the community. Join them on June 27 at Flanagan’s Irish Pub at 7:00 p.m. for a Special Bagpipe and Drum Recital. The following evening at 7:00 p.m., they will host a quiz night on all things Dunedin, Scottish, bagpipes and percussion at Jack Pallino’s Napoletano Pizza and Pub. Then on June 29 at 7:00 p.m., stop by Jack Pallino’s Napoletano Pizza and Pub for a Ceilidh Student Performance! After a week of teaching and hard work, this is an opportunity for their students to stand up and share their music! Everyone is welcome. (Dunedin Tide of Piping, Drumming & Dancing via Facebook)

From our sponsor:

Are you a Dunedin resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?

Bloomberg recently asked experts where they would invest $100,000 right now, and many of them got the same answer: fine art.

Think you can’t afford a Picasso? Well, in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securing of works of art. A company called Masterworks.io has built the largest platform for buying and selling art titles. In the past, you could only buy stocks from companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.

This means that you can invest in stocks of million dollar works of art. And in these uncertain times, it turns out fine art can be a wise investment. Here’s why:

  • Low correlation with equities according to Citi
  • Contemporary art historically yields 23.2% when inflation is > 3%
  • Contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
