Take a good look at the sculptures created by Angela Haseltine Pozzi, along with the help of Washed Ashore team members, volunteers, students, and artists. Over 65 giant sculptures have been created using over 35,000 pounds of marine debris that has been washed up on the shores in Bandon, Oregon. Each of these giant sculptures represents the marine life affected by plastic pollution. These unique pieces are part of a national traveling exhibition that helps build awareness of the problems caused by plastic pollution and marine debris. In addition, Washed Ashore offers free educational programming at exhibit sites and resources to educators who are also interested in building awareness about plastic pollution through community art. It has been our pleasure to work with this extraordinary team whose mission it is to “spark positive changes in the consumer habits that have generated this global issue.”
Washed Ashore exhibits have traveled across the nation from the United Nations to a permanent display for the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Watch it here.
