The exhibition showcases eight assemblages constructed from marine debris that each represent species found at Blowing Rocks Preserve. The assemblages highlight the natural beauty of our shores and raise awareness about protecting coastal ecosystems.

The public is invited to attend a free, family-friendly event celebrating the collaborative art project on August 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. Guests can interact with representatives from the Nature Conservancy while enjoying great art, light bites, and refreshments. For more information, click here.

By collaborating with The Nature Conservancy, Lighthouse ArtCenter created a connection among art, nature, and conservation for campers aged 6 to 12 years. Campers created a collaborative piece of art each week representing a species found at Blowing Rocks Preserve. Assemblages include a brown pelican, Portuguese man o’ war, queen angelfish, blue tang, red mangrove, fiddler crab, green sea turtle, West Indian manatee, and zebra longwing butterfly.
