(WIAT) — A floating art gallery is hitting the Chattahoochee River.

The pontoon was created by two artists in Cottonton.

The boat is making a 220-mile voyage made up of all salvaged material found on the river.

Captain Butch Anthony said they plan to float it all the way to Appalachicola and sell it once they get there.

“We’re sitting down in Appalachicola with these Dutch guys last year, sitting out on the dock drinking coffee and a big ol tree floated by and I said ‘that probably floated all the way from Seale,’ our lake runs right into the creek and it runs into the river,” said Anthony. “And we could have floated down here…so we got the idea to float down here.”
