washed ashore

Here are the amazing marine wildlife sculptures I managed to catch in the Washed Ashore exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo before it ended.

Did anyone else watch Art Attack in the early 90s? Neil Buchanan’s Big Art Attacks were the best…as was The Head. Vik Muniz’s Waste Land also came to mind whilst looking at these. I only managed to find ten of the seventeen sculptures and missed meeting Herman the Sea Turtle, one of the five ocean ambassadors. Perhaps this was due to the many chipmunk encounters and some stalking of said critters on my part. They’re just so fascinating to watch.

I did of course pop in to check on the pandas…they’ve doubled in number since my last visit :).

 

Have a look at what other exhibits are on view at the Smithsonian museums. It’s how I found out about this one.
