The Artula Institute
Artula Institute for Arts and Education is the foundational non-profit organization which enabled and supported the Washed Ashore project. In the early days, Artula hosted an Artist in Residency program by the sea in Bandon, Oregon, which supported the forming of Washed Ashore. Washed Ashore’s continued growth has become the cornerstone of Artula, with four traveling exhibits, ongoing sculpture making and a multitude of other projects.
Washed Ashore's Mission
To build and exhibit aesthetically powerful art to educate a global audience about plastic pollution in the ocean and waterways and to spark positive changes in consumer habits.
The Washed Ashore Movie
The Washed Ashore movie is a full length feature documentary, free to stream and show for educational purposes.
Thank you to our founder
Angela Haseltine Pozzi
Angela’s work as an artist and educator gained new focus in 2010 when she founded the non-profit Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea. Since then, her passion has inspired collaborative learning through art which lead our talented Washed Ashore team members and volunteer artists to reach a growing audience worldwide. The uniquely beautiful sculptures at the heart of the Washed Ashore mission motivate us to learn more and do more to address the problem of plastic pollution in our environment and our precious oceans. Thank you for ten years Angela!
