For a limited time, a traveling exhibit with big meaning is at the Brevard Zoo. Washed Ashore – Art to Save the Sea is a unique collection of sculptures created entirely from marine debris.
Environmental artist Angela Haseltine Pozzi founded the Washed Ashore Project. The project’s intention is to create awareness of the massive debris and plastic pollution problem facing our planet and its effect on marine life and their respective ecosystems. The stunning sculptures put our trash problem into real perspective.
This project was a big undertaking, but yielded impressive results. With over 60 sculptures in the collection, more than 12 tons of marine debris have been removed from beaches and waterways.
The exhibit has brought ten larger-than-life sculptures to the Brevard Zoo and are on display now through May 8. Washed Ashore is included with your regular admission.
This is an inspiring exhibit that shows what can be accomplished when people come together with a common goal; in this case, to produce art that inspires conservation awareness and personal responsibility to better protect our oceans and waterways.
