The Anchorage Museum presents 'Gyre'
Anchorage Museum presents 'Gyre,' a visual story of trash in the world's oceans as told through a handful of mediums, Feb. 7 through Sept. 6. The Anchorage Museum writes:
With stunning visual impact and an astonishing array of ocean trash, internationally recognized artists create works of art for this exhibition from debris collected from beaches around the world. Plastic packaging in a throwaway culture finds its way into our ocean biosphere and then into the hands of artists. Our oceans and beaches are awash in plastic pollution propelled by gyre (rotating ocean currents). The exhibition explores the relationship between humans and the ocean in a contemporary culture of consumption.
