We are excited to host the first Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans project to take place in Santa Cruz, California. From September 13-18, 2021, our team of regional and visiting artists will gather in Santa Cruz for one week to create a series of locally relevant public artworks to help spur environmental activism, while beautifying the town’s streetscape. Sea Walls Santa Cruz will be the most significant urban beautification project in Santa Cruz history.
The public artworks will serve as educational tools and conversation-starters, addressing marine environmental issues relevant and of importance to the local community. Our goal is to ignite ownership for the sustainability of natural resources and to build community around the common cause of protecting the region’s ocean and coast for future generations.
