Pacific Rise: Ocean Health expresses both urgency and hope by highlighting the work of visionary artists, scientists, citizens, and organizations. Through painting, photography, multi-media, sculpture, and academic research, the exhibition focuses on the wonder of the marine world, the current age of destructive human impact on the planet—the Anthropocene epoch—and ideas that can empower us as individuals to take responsibility for our daily choices, and be proactive voices for changing our collective human behavior.
Uniquely sited steps from the Pacific Ocean in the small town of Bolinas, the Bolinas Museum is deeply committed to supporting our ocean and its health. Presenting the theme of ocean health in our five galleries, we will share the work of outstanding visionary artists, biologists, and organizations who bring attention to the wonder of the marine world, the impact of this Anthropocene epoch, and the activism that empowers individuals to be part of the solution. Programming throughout the exhibition will include public educational events with marine biologists, panels with local and internationally recognized scientists, and links to organizations actively working to mitigate the human-caused degradation of the ocean’s health.
