Ocean Defenders Alliance
Saturday, August 17, 2013, 6:30 - 10:00 pm
An evening with
Kurt Lieber, Founder and Director of Ocean Defenders Alliance,
including a film screening and Q & A.
Ocean Defenders Alliance works to clean and protect marine ecosystems through documentation, education, and meaningful action. Working with affected communities, we focus primarily on the reduction and removal of man-made debris which poses serious threats to ocean wildlife and habitats.
ODA envisions a world in which we educate communities and involve them in solutions that help ensure marine ecosystems can exist free from harm caused by human debris. Without abandoned fishing gear, trash, and improperly sunken vessels damaging their habitat, marine flora and fauna will be able to thrive.
In the Gallery, the artwork of filmmaker and artist Michael W. Barnard.
Michael has been making fine art, films, original music, and written works since he was a teenager.
He has made hundreds of films of every description at locations all over the world. Many have won awards.
Michael’s artwork has included many media, but over the past 10 years he has focused primarily on making large-scale photographic montage works called Photofields. Many of these unique works are in collections around the country.
