Local and international artists teamed up to create 15 ocean-themed murals in Emeryville over the past week.
From September 12th to 17th, artists from California, New York, Miami, New Zealand and Greece converged on Emeryville to create art on various giant building walls throughout the city.
PangeaSeed Foundation’s global Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans festival was presented by Stasher and Oxford Properties and meant to increase interest and engagement around marine stewardship and action within the community.
There was also a film screening and panel talk with the artists at Public Market Emeryville on Friday, a California Coastal Clean-Up on Saturday, and Emeryville Mayor John Bauters led a guided mural tour on Saturday.
Here’s a roundup of the mural artists and their work. To learn more about the project and view a map of the murals, click here.
