“The Immortals: Artistic Tile Intervention” will take place on January 18th, 2017 at UCLA as part of #J18: Teach/Organize/Resist Initiative. (http://teachorganizeresist.net/). Each tile will include the “portrait” of an “immortal” or beach trash critter (see image above) and the text below will be pasted on the back of each tile:
“Take me home. I am the perfect pet. I am plastic and therefore immortal. I was found on the beach. I am as cute as I am dangerous. I destroy the ocean and the environment,and will continue to do so, with a vengeance, under Trump.
Please help us raise awareness about coastal pollution:
- Adopt a piece of beach trash
- Put googly eyes on it
- Take a picture of your pet
- Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Street artivist Filomena Cruz (https://filomenacruz.com) and her team will continue to make and give away tiles in defense of the environment.
