June 4 – August 31, 2019
Broadmoor’s summer exhibit features award-winning visual artwork from the 2018 international Ocean Awareness Student Contest run by local nonprofit Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs.
The theme for the 2018 contest was “Our Oceans in a Changing Climate.”
Since 2012, Bow Seat’s annual Ocean Awareness Contest has encouraged young people around the world to dive into critical conservation issues—from oil spills and overfishing to plastic pollution and climate change—with a focus on humans’ roles as both problem-makers and solvers. Nearly 10,000 students from 78 countries and all 50 U.S. states have responded through visual art, writing, film, and music.
These powerful works by young artists expose what is happening to our ocean; reflect on what it means to be a human in the 21st century; discover and advocate for solutions on personal and planetary scales; and inspire a culture of respect and action for all life on this blue planet.
