We have a special exhibit coming for March 7-8, 2020!
This exhibit will feature the winners of the 2019 international Ocean Awareness Student Contest: “Our Oceans in a Changing Climate,” run by local nonprofit Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs.
Since 2012, Bow Seat’s annual Ocean Awareness Contest has encouraged young people around the world to dive into critical conservation issues—from oil spills and overfishing to plastic pollution and climate change—with a focus on humans’ roles as both problem-makers and solvers. Nearly 10,000 students from 78 countries and all 50 U.S. states have responded through visual art, writing, film, and music.
These powerful works by young artists expose what is happening to our ocean; reflect on what it means to be a human in the 21st century; discover and advocate for solutions on personal and planetary scales; and inspire a culture of respect and action for all life on this blue planet.
Know a middle or high school student who is into art, film, poetry or music and loves our oceans? Visit Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs for information about the upcoming year.
Exhibit Hours: Saturday, March 7, 9am-5pm and Sunday, March 8, 9:30am-3pm
