Long Beach Urban Ocean Festival
The Arts Council for Long Beach is thrilled to announce the upcoming Urban Ocean Festival Art Exhibition, presented by the Aquarium of the Pacific! Join the Aquarium and show off your artwork in the juried Urban Ocean Festival.
Each year the Aquarium of the Pacific holds a festival celebrating the convergence of wildlife, industry, recreation, and nature that takes place off the coast of Southern California in our urban ocean. This year’s Urban Ocean Festival will be held on May 5 and 6 and will feature contests for art, poetry, and fashion that use a variety of media to communicate ideas about the urban ocean.
The winner of the Trashin Fashion contest will receive $500.
The Aquarium of the Pacific will be hosting its second Trashin Fashion Show and Contest during its annual Urban Ocean Festival on May 5 and 6, 2012. A $500 cash prize will be awarded to the most creative eco-friendly design.
The deadline for submitting poetry for the Urban Ocean Festival contest is April 6.
The Aquarium of the Pacific is now accepting entries for its second annual Urban Ocean Poetry Contest, which is held in conjunction with the Aquarium’s Urban Ocean Festival.
