A follow up posting to herald the well received and popular exhibit, “Washed Ashore: Plastics, Sea Life, and Art” showing at The Marine Mammal Center, through
October 15, 2011. “Washed Ashore” is the vision of artist and educator Angela Haseltine Pozzi, and is a community art project that transformed ocean trash from the Pacific Ocean shores in Oregon, to 15 massive, colorful works of marine life art.
Kate’s Blossoms participated in the exhibit opening with the donation of floral designs, styled in plastic containers. All the plastic containers used were those which had contained food and sundries’ products in Kate’s home over the course of just one month. Collaborating on this project, then seeing the exhibit, made all of us at the studio realize: this beautiful art is all ocean junk which washed ashore. Reduce, ReUse, Recycle, Repurpose.
Here’s to clean and clear oceans, and to those who swim in them.
