SCRAP Humboldt’s Call for artists for ocean themed artwork made from plastics

Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) According to the National Geographic, ocean plastic is estimated to kill millions of marine animals every year; and 18 billion pounds of plastic waste flows into the oceans annually from coastal regions.

That’s why Scrap Humboldt and the Ink People Center for Arts wants to turn a negative into a positive by attempting to keep plastic out of the sea.

The companies are asking the public to collect plastic that may be found on the beach or in recycle bins and to create two and three dimensional art pieces for the groups joint exhibition titled out of the sea.

The companies share that the project challenges artists to create ocean themed artwork made from plastics to be displayed at the Brenda Tuxford Gallery in Eureka. 

If interested, participants must drop off artwork on August 1 from 8 AM to 1 PM and there will be an art opening for the exhibition August 3 during Arts Alive.

Prizes will be awarded.
