About the Plastic Ocean Art Exhibit

Bonnie Monteleone has collected digital images of plastic artifacts retrieved from four of the five global garbage patches, and has combined them with her own open ocean photography in a traveling art display.

This display has traveled 3,700 miles, on a journey to portray how the world's oceans have been scourged by plastics. The art will be on display from January 12 - February 13 at the Viewpoint Gallery. Find out more.
