Love Your Mother


Published:

Earth, that is. The art project Washed Ashore turns trash into treasure and highlights the ongoing crisis of plastic pollution in the ocean. The mixed-media sculptures, making their Southern California début at the Chula Vista Nature Center, are the vision of Angela Haseltine Pozzi. With the help of volunteers, the Oregon-based art teacher gathered thousands of pounds of garbage from the coastline and created a collection of sea animals. Some are more than 12 feet tall, and all are made of non-biodegradable items, such as flip-flops, toothbrushes, and sand toys—which can be harmful to marine life. The exhibit runs through July, and is free with admission to the nature center. Go “sea” what it’s all about. And for prawns’ sake, throw your plastic bottles in the recycle bin!
