“The power of public

“The power of public art and activism has the ability to educate and inspire the global community to help save our oceans,” says PangeaSeed Foundation founder and Executive Director, Tre' Packard. No matter where you are in the world, the ocean supplies us with every second breath we take and life on Earth cannot exist without healthy oceans. With dwindling global fish stocks, rising sea levels, ocean acidification, and widespread pollution, whether you live on the coast, in the city or in the mountains, we should all feel responsible for the health of our oceans and life that lives within it. Simply put, without healthy oceans, life on land is impossible. In 2014, PangeaSeed Foundation, the Hawaiibased non-profit organization established the Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans program, a public art initiative, and the first of its kind, that brings the oceans into streets around the world. Since its inception, they have created over 300 public murals in coastal communities around the world helping to inspire and educate individuals to become better stewards of our seas. “Through the Sea Walls program, we aim to generate awareness for pressing marine environmental issues, and catalyze positive change within the communities we work in by fostering a sense of pride and ownership for the murals and their natural resources,” Packard adds. 126

LOOKBOOK 018 Forging a synthesis between public art, nature, and society, PangeaSeed Foundation has collaborated with renowned contemporary artists to create large-scale public murals in New Zealand, Canada, Grenada, Vietnam, Mexico, Estonia, China, Sri Lanka, and throughout the U.S. By creating a worldclass platform and unifying a global network of concerned creative individuals painting for a purpose, they are one step closer to helping save the lungs of the planet. Upcoming Sea Walls projects are slated to take place in Australia, South Africa, and the Philippines. Due to the nomadic nature of the Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans program, international partnerships with organizations and brands are paramount to the success of the initiative. Montana Cans has been a vital partner and supporter of the cause supporting multiple Sea Walls projects around the world. 127
