Everyday Trash Everyday Art

Alison McDonald Message in a Bottle
The star of Open Sea exhibit in the Monterey Bay Aquarium is the great white shark at the moment, but there’s an area with an artistic bent where there are displays and explanations of artwork that are both beautiful and awareness raising.

I was fascinated by Alison McDonald’s installation, ‘Message in a Bottle’…perhaps because of our recent visit to the Marin Marine Mammal Washed Ashore Exhibit and it’s similar message about disposable things, but also because the and the carved out forms are lovely and evocative of the live things swimming in the tanks.
