SeaWorld's 50th Anniversary Celebration Presents Marine Debris Sculptures of Threatened Sea Life, March 2014
An unusual art exhibit of giant sea life sculptures made from ocean debris by nonprofit Washed Ashore will be part of SeaWorld's "Sea of Surprises", for its 50th Anniversary Celebration from March 2014 thru September 2015.
"The SeaWorld venue offers Washed Ashore a unique opportunity to bring our art and educational message about ocean pollution to millions of people," said Angela Haseltine Pozzi, lead artist and Executive Director of the Oregon-based organization. "Reaching the widest possible audience with our ocean awareness message is our primary goal," added Pozzi.
"SeaWorld is sponsoring Washed Ashore's new large-scale art display to highlight its commitment to the environment and passion for protecting the ocean," according to Aimée Jeansonne Becka, Marketing Communications Director for SeaWorld.
"Washed Ashore's work serves as a reminder that our animal friends need healthy environments," said Jeansonne Becka.
Washed Ashore works with community members, volunteers and school groups to clean beaches and teach about marine debris while creating giant sea life sculptures. There will be a total of twelve new sculptures created for SeaWorld. From a giant Octopus and Penguin to a Tiger Shark and Coral Reef. Four sculptures will be appearing at each of the three SeaWorld Parks in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio.
