Environmental Project: Beach Sculpture with Fern Smith

Description Long

ArtWaves is proud to be unveiling a brand new strand for 2019, our Environmental Project. The festival understands the need for a greater understanding of plastic pollution and the impact this is having on our seas.

Local artist Fern Smith is working in collaboration with East Riding College to create a large scale sculpture of a fish. The intention is for this installation to be a permanent sculpture and spectacle for the local community to dispose of their plastic waste on the beach safely.
