Trash art helps to Keep Bermuda Beautiful

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

One man's trash has become another man's treasure for the annual art exhibition hosted by environmental charity Keep Bermuda Beautiful.

Artists were asked to include colourful beach trash in their submissions for the A Drop in the Ocean trash art show on display at the Bermuda Society of Arts.

Amy Schillingford, KBB president, said: “It is an honour to partner once again with the Bermuda Society of Arts for our seventh annual Trash Art Show. “We are excited to launch the 2018 show and to see what imaginative art pieces people are able to create with reused beach plastics.

“We welcome the public to come and check out the inspiring pieces and reflect on the impact of plastic pollution on our oceans.”

The exhibition, which opened with a reception on June 29, aims to highlight plastic pollution in the oceans and the damage this can cause to marine life. The artwork will be on show until July 24.
