About this event
This exhibit features larger-than-life sculptures, made from a variety of plastics intercepted from the waste stream by artists Sayaka Ganz and Aurora Robson. They have turned the harsh reality of plastic pollution into a beautiful, powerful, and educational exhibit that will inspire us all to rethink our use of plastics and to change our own habits. In the ultimate "seek and find," discover the everyday plastics that have been transformed into sculptures of dolphins, penguins, a whale, coral, and other creatures of the sea and sky. Create memories with your family as you explore the indoor gardens and participate in a community bottle cap build at the creation station. The exhibit is included with paid garden admission ($10 adults, $5 children 6-12) and is free for garden members and children under six years of age.
