Traveling Exhibitions

The Washed Ashore Project creates powerful art that captivates all ages and teaches environmental conservation and sustainability.

The Washed Ashore Traveling Exhibits feature collections of intricate, beautifully designed, giant sea life sculptures made entirely of marine debris collected from beaches. The sculptures of marine life graphically illustrate the tragedy of plastic pollution in our oceans and waterways and to encourage conservation. Teacher, staff and docent workshops lead by our expert education team combining art, science and environmental issues are included in the exhibit package. Additional workshops and presentations are also available.

Washed Ashore works with you to create exhibits that fit your space and align with your venue’s goals. Whether your space is small or large, indoors or outside, we build highly detailed, wow-factor exhibits that inspire.
