Washed Ashore - May to November, 2019
The Washed Ashore exhibit features giant sea life sculptures made entirely of marine debris collected from beaches to graphically illustrate the tragedy of plastic pollution in our oceans and waterways. All of the artwork is combined with scientifically based educational signage to teach children and adults about ocean stewardship, responsible consumer habits, and how ‘every action counts’ to help save the sea.
