Plastics-Sea-Life-Art

We saw this exhibition advertised on a bus today, and we found it very interesting; Washed Ashore: Plastics, Sea Life and Art at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, California shows 15 marine life sculptures all created from plastics and trash found in our world's oceans. The sculptures are bringing attention to the marine debris crisis.



Some of the sculptures featured are:

Henry the Fish, above, made from plastics, aluminum cans, dish soap bottles, lids, buoys, toys, and recycled rebar.

In the gallery below there is a sea star (made from clear and green bottles, plastic trash, foam), a whale bone sculpture made from plastic bottles and jugs, a coral reef made from Styrofoam and polystyrene, and a toys and plastic fishing lines are connected to create an artificial reef.
