Current Collections Sculpture
We are so excited to be bringing the Current Collections sculpture and community engagement project to Atlanta! Join us in expanding the conversation to an urban city surrounded by rivers and streams and creating a conversation around the impact of urban trash on our waterways and ocean. Together we can bring to light how we can positively improve water quality and the environment for wildlife that make their home in the water. Located in Centennial Olympic Park, the sculpture will connect a million people with litter’s impact on our streams, rivers and ocean in May and June.
The amount of trash entering our storm-water drains and waterways has become so large that it is virtually impossible to quantify. Current Collections is a nationally and internationally recognized inquiry-based, experiential public art sculpture calling attention to this crisis in a solutions-oriented way. This sculpture and community-engagement project increases our awareness of urban litter issues, stimulates litter-reduction behaviors and inspires us to positive civic action.
The Current Collections Project supports the Clean Communities – Clean Coasts outreach campaign, which integrates community beach & coastal cleanup efforts with public and college environmental awareness forums and youth after-school STEM & art education programs. Clean Communities – Clean Coasts engages youth, locals and tourists in communities on the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay of Pinellas county, Florida and the city of Atlanta, Georgia.
This sculpture is a nationally and internationally recognized experiential, environmentally themed public artwork created by three Atlanta-based sculptors, Mike Wsol, Dena Light, and Amandine Drouet, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, and prominent oceanographer, Dr. Frank Muller-Karger. Current Collections recently debuted in St. Petersburg, Florida.
