Glendale Community College Art Gallery shares Our Reef!

Waterworks II (on the road!) September 12 - October 2, 2015 
My experience of installing our Something in the Water reef at Glendale Community College, Glendale, California was off the hook. I wish you all could have been flies on the wall because about one in five of the students and faculty passing by stopped to watch. How often do people stop in their tracks in this day and age??? About half of them were so intrigued that they came in to talk. These are busy students on their ways to and from class!

They wanted to know more about it. What IS this???? The more they heard the more their interest level spiked. Gallery attendants loved talking about that piece with visitors. It was located right by glass doors to the gallery and proved to be a major draw. You should all be thrilled by the attention your work continues to draw to important issues of plastic pollution review in the student paper, El Vaquero gives SIW prominent mention. The impact of our work is not diminishing. Remember if any of you want to start a reef where you live, let me know! I will help you any way I can.

recent article in the LA Times reported new studies finding plastic and textile fibers in seafood. Please read this and pass it on! In it they also mention that industry sources say that amount of plastic produced each year is roughly 70 lbs for every human on earth!

Check out photos below of our beautiful reef........
