The exhibit features 15 giant sculptures of sea life made almost entirely from trash collected from beaches.
It was developed by the nonprofit group The Washed Ashore Project to create awareness about marine debris and plastic pollution through art.
The sculptures were amazing!
From their website:
A work of art is born. From tons of plastic pollution, monumental sculptures have arisen to awaken the hearts and minds of viewers to the marine debris crisis.
Our art pieces and educational programs travel the nation to inspire change in consumer habits.
Can we turn this around? It seems doubtful.
