ART MILES COMPLETE 40 MURALS DURING THE URBAN OCEAN FESTIVAL – LONG BEACH AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC ON 5 AND 6 MAY

Imagine! Professional artists and the general public working together to create murals about giant octopus, sharks, crab, lobsters, all kinds of fish and mermaids!
That’s how it went during the two day Urban Ocean Festival at the beautiful Long Beach Aquarium. Through the coordination of Debbie Garza, Brad Diaz, and master muralist Vicky Sumida, this annual event continues to grow in popularity with each year. About 25 professional artists painted incredible murals with most of them also coaching young ocean art enthusiasts resulting in yet another amazing collection of murals created at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The Art Miles LOVES the Aquarium and it’s staff who love their job, the interaction with the public and art miles and it shows through the brilliant results of the artwork! Many thanks to Tara Art Materials for their support and generosity as a major material donor.
