The Story

Please join Now Art LA for our latest collaboration with the artist James Peterson for 'STRAWS,' the public kinetic free-flowing sculpture that celebrates the ban of plastic straws to save our oceans. Your donation helps us install and de-install the piece as it travels through Southern California, with additional proceeds going towards our non-profit partners, Surfrider Foundation and Shark Allies. 

We have not received any grants, civic or corporate funding to support this project.  Your contributions matter, and will help us move this artwork to other locations and continue creating awareness of the impact straws have on our ocean.  

The 12k straws collected by environmental organizations doing beach cleanups in Southern California are showcased on this artwork.  

Become a part of our STRAWS project and join the ban of plastic straws to save our oceans!
