When the Beach Met the Bay


Long Beach Sidewalk ExhibitOpening June 25th, this outdoor sidewalk exhibit in LB consisting of 24,000 plastic cups collected from the area was created by L. B. KIDS, an educational, contemporary, community-based art initiative founded by artist Lisa Be.

This mosaic references the night of Hurricane Sandy, ”when the beach met the bay” in the West End, while celebrating the community strength that has grown in the storm’s aftermath and calling attention to the increasingly problematic concentration of plastic in our water supply.

Ongoing. Corner of Maryland Avenue & Beech Street, Long Beach
