SAN DIEGO, California – PangeaSeed Foundation, in collaboration with Cohort Collective, Surfrider Foundation and Kaaboo Del Mar, just wrapped it up their 2nd edition of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans mural festival in San Diego.
A group of renowned artists celebrated the majesty of Southern California’s marine environment through a series of community-centered events and the painting of ocean-themed murals to beautify neighborhoods, galvanize the local community and raise awareness for the importance of San Diego’s precious marine natural resources.
The San Diego festival of PangeaSeed’s globe-spanning Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans project featured over 20 international and local contemporary artists, collaborating to bring vital environmental issues into the spotlight.
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind helping to save our seas and water resources via public art and activism (ARTivism).“This project is a labor of love for our team, artists, and community partners,” says Christopher Konecki, regional director, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans. “Art can transcend cultural and linguistic boundaries; as ‘artivists’ we believe that using our talents to raise social and environmental awareness can inspire positive change and action.”
The murals are located around San Diego, in high profile locations such as The Observatory North Park, Wonderland Ocean Pub, La Bodega Gallery, and BJ’s Rentals. Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans – San Diego is proudly presented by Cohort Collective, Surfrider Foundation, Kaaboo Del Mar, Montana Cans, and Osel Paint. With support from Alexandria Real Estate, DPR Construction, Dunedin North Park, All Access Rentals, Art Life, Artist and Craftsman Supply, Manda, Topheads, Ego Id Media, and 1xRUN.
