Marine Debris Art Contest – Call for Art


Artist Boat is hosting a Marine Debris Art Contest, and we would love it if you join us for your chance at winning the grand prize with your beautiful artwork!

This contest gets people involved in turning trash into treasure while demonstrating the effects aquatic trash can have on our oceans and the life that depends on them

Artists may use the medium of their choice.

Artwork should consist primarily of non-glass debris that could otherwise end up in our ocean.

If Galveston receives Sargassum this year, that material may also be used to showcase the benefits of Sargassum.

Artwork should not exceed 3’H x 3’L x 3’W.

LIMIT ONE SUBMISSION PER ARTIST. Artwork will be displayed and judged at the Galveston Art League.
