Take a close look at the sculptures created by Angela Haseltine Pozzi’s non-profit, Washed Ashore. Over 65 giant sculptures have been created by Angela and her team of volunteers using over 35,000 pounds of marine debris. Angela started this amazing journey when she noticed all of the plastic pollution that had been washed up on the shores of her home in Bandon, Oregon. Each of these giant sculptures represents the marine life affected by plastic pollution. These unique pieces are part of a national traveling exhibition that helps build awareness of the problems caused by plastic pollution and marine debris.
Washed Ashore offers free educational programming at exhibit sites and resources to educators who are also interested in building awareness about plastic pollution through community art. I have worked with Washed Ashore team to design an Integrated Arts Marine Debris Curriculum that is available as a free download for educators and parents. Education is a specific passion, so I’m proud to be part of this initiative. It has been a pleasure to work with this extraordinary team. The Washed Ashore mission is to “spark positive changes in the consumer habits that have generated this global issue.”
