Sea Lions in San Francisco

Calling Artists:

Aquarium of the Bay is invites local artists to take part in “Sea Lions in San Francisco”, a celebration of the 30 years of sea lions at PIER 39.  We are seeking 30 artists from around the Bay Area to paint 30 6-foot-tall sea lion statues with an environmental message through artistic creativity that highlights both the artists own personal style, and the diverse creativity of the San Francisco art community.  Starting January 1st, each sea lion will be on display for one year in a prominent location around the Bay Area, offering a great opportunity to promote environmental messaging. The messaging may illustrate conservation, recycling, clean energy, plastic pollution, green sustainable practices, and climate resilience.
