Proceeds from this release go toward supporting Pangea Seed's Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans second annual summer festival in Cozumel, Mexico.
PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind helping to save our seas via public art and activism (ARTivism). The festival will feature 30 world-renowned contemporary artists from across the globe, collaborating to bring vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight. The festival’s educational workshops will engage local youth to learn more about critical marine environmental issues affecting their home island, and what they can do to help save our seas. Sea Walls aims to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet’s most important ecosystem: the ocean.
