These are images from Underwater FantaSea, an exhibition at the i.d.e.a. Museum in Mesa, Arizona (February 12, 2016 – May 29, 2016). i.d.e.a. Museum’s mission is to inspire children of all ages to experience their world differently through art, creativity and imagination.
This show provides an opportunity to learn about the importance of oceans, how they impact the individual, and how one can do his or her part to keep them healthy – even if one lives hundreds of miles from them. It includes 60 thought provoking artworks by 14 different artists working in a wide range of media such as painting, sculpture, textile arts, prints, photographs, and digital art.
Margaret Craig’s 3 sea topiaries, alternative re-purposed plastic lifeforms, can be seen illuminated in the display cases.
