PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind, helping to save our seas via public art and activism or ARTivism. This year’s festival in Cozumel featured over 50 contemporary artists from across the globe, collaborating to bring vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight. Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans aims to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet’s most important ecosystem: the ocean.
Check out the video from our crew as they tell the stories from the artists point of view as they endure the heat to spread the message of issues that effect our oceans. Plus killer photos from the 35 massive murals throughout Cozumel!
Within the span of 5 days, 35 large-scale public murals were realized throughout Cozumel’s town center, addressing pressing marine environmental issues such as shark finning, over fishing, coastal development, climate change, and coral reef conservation. This series of Sea Walls murals helps educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of our ocean and the life that calls it In addition to the realization of the murals, the artists had the opportunity to immerse themselves into and experience the various marine ecosystems of Cozumel Island, and learn from local experts about environmental challenges they are facing.
