The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center to Host New Exhibit June 7  to  September 28
The exhibit opens June 7, and on June 8, Worlds Ocean Day, the exhibits creator will give a free presentation at 2 p.m. in the Aquariums six-story theater entitled, Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea.

Washed Ashore which runs June 7 – September 28, uses giant sea life sculptures made entirely of marine debris collected from beaches to graphically illustrate the tragedy of pollution in our oceans. Under the artistic direction of Angela Haseltine Pozzi, thousands of volunteers from Oregon and other West Coast beaches have collected tons of marine debris to create the enormous sea life creatures to create several traveling exhibits of Washed Ashore: Ocean Awareness Through Art.
