Tulsa Zoo guests can view 11 colorful, larger-than-life sculptures of aquatic animals on display throughout the zoo. This temporary exhibit is included in the cost of regular zoo admission.
The Tulsa Zoo presents Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea, from June 29, 2019, through Jan. 5, 2020.
Made entirely of plastic debris collected from beaches, Washed Ashore sculptures unmask the impacts of plastic pollution on oceans, waterways and wildlife.
This exhibit is free with regular zoo admission.
The artwork was created by the non-profit organization WashedAshore.org dedicated to educating about plastic pollution through art. Oregon-based artist Angela Haseltine Pozzi and her team of volunteers constructed each piece from plastic litter collected on West Coast beaches.
