Trash Is Repurposed Into Something Beautiful During the Washed Ashore Exhibit

Have made a trip to Clinton President Center lately for family-friendly fun? The Clinton Presidential Center’s latest temporary exhibit, Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea, is a family-friendly exhibit that features more than 20 giant sea life sculptures made entirely of trash and debris collected from beaches. This exhibit poignantly illustrates the toll trash takes on our oceans and waterways.

The incredible marine life sculptures will be accompanied by educational signage allowing visitors to learn about the fascinating species, environmental stewardship, responsible consumer habits, and how “every action counts” to help save our waterways.

“The sculptures are beautiful, truly works of art, but they are a poignant reminder that our oceans and waterways are precious resources that need our attention now more than ever,” said Stephanie S. Streett, executive director of the Clinton Foundation. Washed Ashore is a visual reminder of the disposable products that end up in our waters, and that each of us can take action to prevent further pollution.

The Washed Ashore exhibit will be primarily displayed inside two of the Clinton Center’s galleries.
Washed Ashore presents an opportunity to reflect on the Clinton administration’s efforts to safeguard essential bodies of water and promote environmental stewardship. It is sponsored by the Regional Recycling & Waste Reduction District. We hope to see you there!
