Washed Ashore Presents “Art to Save the Sea” Presentations in Bay City May 6th, Seaside May 7th

Artists and community organizers gather to reclaim the future and ignite powerful social change in consumer and visitor behavior.
Everyone who has seen Washed Ashore’s stunning pieces of public art made from reclaimed marine debris has wondered “How’d they do that?”
Art to Save The Sea will occur May 6th 5:30 -7:30 pm at the Bay City Art Center and May 7th 5:30 – 7:30 pm at Seaside Brewing. Search Eventbright “Art To Save The Sea” for additional events in Gleneden Beach, Yachats, and Brookings. Attendees of these gatherings will learn the process behind these masterpieces and see a visual presentation by John Tannous, Executive Director of Washed Ashore which explains everything.

Over the next two years several large pieces of public art will be created and sighted in various communities on the Central and Northern Oregon Coast. Communities interested in securing such a piece of public art should attend and inquire about the siting process.
After learning about the unique process Washed Ashore has championed, interested artists and community organizers can apply for a multi-week artist residency in Bandon to dive deeper into their process and support the creation of future pieces of public art from marine debris.
Some scholarships and living stipends are available by the generous support of the Oregon Coast Visitors Association and Travel Oregon.
