Special Art Exhibit Premiere:
The Ghost Below at The Marine Mammal Center
Date: Saturday, December 1, 2012 – December 31, 2013
Time: 10 am – 5 pm, daily

Approximately 100,000 marine mammals and nearly 1 million seabirds become an entangled in and die from ocean trash each year. Visit The Marine Mammal Center starting December 1, and experience a magnificent art exhibit called The Ghost Below.

Artists Richard and Judith Selby Lang have created the first of multiple sculptures that will be displayed at the Center throughout 2012-2013 as part of an ongoing art exhibit using a unique medium: fishing nets, nearly 200 lb to be exact! The first  sculpture is shaped into a creature-like form and the nets were extracted from the belly of a sperm whale carcass that scientists from the Center were examining. This beautiful, yet arrestingly haunting exhibit by these famous artists will immerse visitors with a powerful message of hope – we can make a difference to save our oceans and prevent ocean trash.
