Spotlight on Art: Blue Hour Art Exhibit Alta Sea’s Future is Blue 

The backdrop in the harbor.

On the clear and salty evening of October 14, Alta Sea hosted their annual fundraiser at the San Pedro docks in an impeccably decorated Berth 57, with its 60,000 square foot warehouse situated on the Alta Sea campus. Guests were ushered onto a floating barge where they enjoyed premium wine and spirits, and the unique opportunity to meet renowned ocean explorer Sylvia Earle. The host committee included actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and environmental advocates Philippe and Ashlan Cousteau. Two Indian elders from the Wishtoyo Chumash Village performed a sunset ceremony. A film was screened about the importance of our oceans for the health of our planet, and the potential of energy from waves. The film includes appearances by naturalist Jane Goodall, and Duchess of  York Sarah Ferguson.  An art collection curated by Kim Abeles featured ceramics, video, glass, photography, sound and paintings by over 20 artists.
