Since 1999 Richard and Judith Lang have focused their attention on just 1000 yards of tide line where they have collected plastic washing ashore on Kehoe Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore. Although the news about plastic pollution is dire, they bring the excitement of scouting for treasures and the pleasure of the creative life to an otherwise difficult topic.
After the inaugural and successful launch of the Ocean Art Walk along the Stanley Waterfront in Hong Kong, we are happy to announce that all of the art has been moved to a new home, in front of the new Maritime Museum at Pier 8 in Central,Hong Kong. The art has been organized by Ocean Recovery Alliance and the Hong Kong Shark Foundation, with the exhibit showing art related to sharks, fishing and plastic pollution, all in a creative, colorful, fun way, to bring awareness about ocean protection.
Although the show is called "Built for Speed" we've been working triple speed to get our contribution ready for the May 10 opening to the public. We are thrilled to be commissioned to create for the California Academy of Sciences threeOcean Action Stations to address three important issues related to ocean health: plastic waste, unsustainable fishing and wastewater pollution. It has been an incredible opportunity for us as artists to bring our vision and skills into the realm of science. Ocean Action Station: Savvy with Seafood
One of the special challenges has been to create labels for faux fish cans to address the problem of overfishing and importance of making wise seafood choices.
