Ocean Plastic - A Marin Art Show

by Bill Hickman

This Saturday April 6th, Ocean Plastic, an art show sponsored by the Surfrider Foundation Marin County Chapter, opens in Sausalito! 

As part of the opening day festivities there will be an artists reception and an impressive list of guest speakers including Beth Terry, Daniella Russo, Chris Princetich and David Helvarg. 

Plus, YOU can help create a 64 square foot mandala of ocean plastic!  Check out the attached fliers for all of the details.

Last year I was able to check in with a bunch of Surfrider activists in and around San Francisco.  I met up with longtime activist and local legend Scott Tye in Stinson Beach who introduced me to Tess Felix and some of her amazing artwork from beach litter, mainly plastic pollution. 

Here's a picture of Scott along with a piece from another local installation that collected discarded plastic bottles to create an oversized display to highlight the problem:



Here's a picture I took of one of Tess' pieces.  Check out the detail and check out her work at the Ocean Plastic Art Show in Sausalito, Marin County, California!
