Clean Up The Beach and Waterways with SeaKeepers! Beach + Kayak Cleanup

Interested in volunteering in your community while helping the environment? Get involved with The International SeaKeepers Society! 🌎 Support SeaKeepers by volunteering at our combined beach + waterway clean up to recognize the ocean’s critical importance to the life of our planet!

The Museum of Graffiti will be joining the Seakeepers for a shoreline clean-up of the Biscayne Bay like never before! Unlike a regular beach clean up, participants will save certain found objects to make into their own 3-D art piece that resembles sculptures found in the Museum's latest exhibition, Symbiosis by artist Gustavo Oviedo.

Oviedo’s work draws inspiration from the Biscayne Bay and features several sculptures comprised of foreign articles found tangled in mangroves and corals. Oviedo has spent years collecting these discarded objects and making them into art. 

Oviedo will be engaging with volunteers on how to create new art with discovered “trash” while explaining the significance of this art form after the clean up.

for a $30 donation, volunteers will be able to participate in the on-site art class with Gustavo Oviedo and gain free admission to the Museum of Graffiti until November 21st. If you are interested, you can make the donation here: https://www.showclix.com/event/symbiosis-beach-clean-up
