Botanica hosts ocean-debris sculptures 

Fourteen oversized sculptures will be placed throughout Botanica’s gardens May 14-Oct. 23 for the traveling exhibition Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea.

Sculptures by Angela Pozzi and her team create giant sea life sculptures made entirely of marine debris collected from beaches. Their goal is to educate and illustrate what plastic pollution is doing to oceans and waterways. The exhibit is included with general admission. For details, visit botanica.org.
