Beach Trash Mosaic Adorns Exterior Wall of Venice Surf Shop

A magnificent yet tedious street art project just wrapped this afternoon in Venice, and passers-by are approvingly snapping photos of the brilliant display.

Barefoot Wine, the Surfrider Foundation and four local artists combined forces to create a 14×10-foot “One Beach” film poster mural on the side of Mollusk Surf Shop. The project uses 16,000 pieces of beach trash – all collected and sorted by color – and spanned four days of careful selection, positioning and adhesion.

Organizers clad in “One Beach” tees stand proudly by the mural this afternoon, eagerly explaining the project to curious pedestrians.
