Tide Craft

plastic marine artThe 2015 Anacortes Arts Festival is spearheading a public art project called Tide Craft, using salvaged marine debris. With the partnership of environmental groups, they have been collecting trash from regional beaches and passing it onto teams of artists who are transforming it into art. The Tide Craft creations will be on display, along with information about the environmental impact of marine debris. The artists will also be on hand to create an audience participation piece during the Festival. Artist team leaders include:

Susan Parke
Sue Roberts
Ann Reid – BioBird
Karen Hackenberg, Margie McDonald & Gloria Lamson – Welcome to the Plastisphere

We would also like to thank Padilla Bay Interpretive Center, Paul Argites working with the Northwest Straits Initiative and Skagit County Zero Waste for their partnership in Tide Craft.
