ABOUT THE EXHIBIT Summer 2021 will feature the debut of Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea at Green Bay Botanical Garden and in Wisconsin. Guests of all ages will be enthralled by and get to interact with eight larger-than-life sculptures of animals made from trash and debris washed up from bodies of water. You’ll discover the connections between plastic waste, the wellbeing of marine life and learn everyday actions that we can all take to make a difference for the Great Lakes and beyond. Washed Ashore has traveled to botanical gardens, aquariums, zoos and museums across North America. Over the last several years, it has gained popularity, making stops at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History; SeaWorld Parks in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio; Toronto Zoo and even the Epcot Center at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, among many more. The Garden is the first and only venue in Wisconsin to host this traveling exhibit. ABOUT THE SCULPTURES These sculptures will be placed throughout the Garden including a brand new sculpture – Stanley the Lake Sturgeon – to represent that plastic pollution affects the Great Lakes region, too.
