Join Us for a Sea Turtle Art Exhibit at Art League Academy for Three Days Only
Halfway Home supports Sea Turtle Patrol HHI
Art League of Hilton Head is partnering with Sea Turtle Patrol HHI, a nonprofit organization that monitors and supports the nesting and hatching of sea turtles on Hilton Head beaches, to help raise both awareness and funds for this endangered species. A special three-day exhibit featuring sea turtle-themed artwork created by local artists will be held at Art League Academy July 18-20, with a closing reception on July 20, 5-7 pm.
- 20% of the proceeds from all art sales and class tuition will be donated to Sea Turtle Patrol HHI
- 100% of all raffle ticket sales to win Richard Grant’s artwork “Hatchlings” will be donated to Sea Turtle Patrol HHI
“We named the exhibit Halfway Home because we’ll be right at the halfway point of the sea turtle season,” says Kristen McIntosh, Executive Director of Art League of Hilton Head. “The artists have created some beautiful pieces for sale, and we’re thrilled to be able to help such a worthy cause.”
“We patrol the beach daily from May through October, protecting our sea turtle population and educating beachgoers throughout the season,” says Amber Kuehn, Sea Turtle Patrol HHI’s Director. “Our volunteer staff depends on the support of the local community. Partnering with Art League means the world to us.”
The exhibit will be held at Art League Academy, located at 106 Cordillo Parkway. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. The winner of the raffle for Richard Grant’s “Hatchlings” will be announced at the closing reception.
