Washed Ashore: Art to Save The Sea
  • Location: Multiple Locations

Washed Ashore - a traveling art exhibit coming to Galveston Island this winter - is aimed at educating the public about the hazards of plastic pollution in the world’s waterways.

Washed Ashore’s huge, awe-inspiring sculptures are constructed entirely of plastic collected from beaches and designed to demonstrate the scale of plastic pollution found in our oceans and waterways. The creatures are beautiful, whimsical and shocking all at once- and the best part, they are spending their holidays right here, on island time.

The Washed Ashore experience at Galveston is like an island-wide scavenger hunt. Not only can visitors search for the 20+ art pieces, but also find unique things hidden within every sculpture.

Have you ever seen an 8-foot-tall octopus? How about a parrot fish with a 2-foot smile? Come down to Galveston this winter and meet Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea, a FREE, engaging family exhibit on display at 19 locations across Galveston Island from December 10, 2022, to March 12, 2023.
