LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Discover Arkansas team traveled to the William Clinton Presidential Library to discover the temporary exhibit, Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea.
The exhibit, which travels all over the United States, was created by an Oregon artist, Angela Haseltine Pozzi, who got tired of finding trash washed up on the shore of the Pacific Ocean.
The entire exhibit was built using trash, and was developed in a way to bring awareness to the growing problem of trash in our water.
One of the interesting aspects to the exhibit is visitors are encouraged to touch all the exhibits as they make their way through the brilliant displays of art. The display is so large it had to be split up into two separate sections of the library.
Mariel and Adam almost had a somber feel as they considered all the trash pollution, but they were reminded the artist who created the exhibit wants people to be hopeful and encouraged. This truly is a problem, but we, the members of society, can step up and reduce, reuse and recycle.
The exhibit will be at the Clinton Presidential Library until Oct. 27.
