Tides of Trash Exhibit Combined with Beach Cleanup
SCAD Alumna Kristin Myers is on Clean Coast's wavelength with her Art Exhibit titled "Tides of Trash".
In an attempt to raise awareness about recycling, be more environmentally conscious and keep beaches clean, Kristin Myers collects trash she finds on the beaches she visits and uses the trash to create artwork reflecting the object's enduring existence. By doing this she highlights the presence of the object, making it a permanent memory, much like its permanence in the natural world. Through her work she brings awareness to the garbage we create.
Kristin also decided that it would be appropriate to host a beach cleanup on Tybee Island in conjunction with her exhibit and asked Clean Coast for our help. We will meet Kristin at the Tybee Pavilion at 9 a.m. on March 15. The first dozen people to show up will receive a screen print made from one of her ink drawings of an ocean wave.
