Exhibition highlights marine litter
A new immersive exhibition has opened in the Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery.
Titled Spiny Seahorses and Ripping Yarns, it is the result of a collaboration between local environmental artist, Trudi Lloyd Williams, and Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
Trudi has been on a 12-year mission to raise awareness of the impact plastics have on the marine environment through art and community action. Marine litter is a growing threat to the natural world. Tiny micro-plastics and tangles of deadly rubbish are polluting beaches and choking wildlife. Wild creatures, from crabs to whales, suffer stomachs blocked with plastic and chemical-filled waters.
The new exhibition shines a spotlight on this issue through art and interpretation, providing simple, achievable steps visitors can take.
The exhibition will run until spring 2022, open daily from 10am-5pm. Entry is free.
