Coral Projects is an artist-run, site-specific art exhibition underwater. The motivation and urgency for the project is inspired by the rapidly deteriorating coral reef life along Jamaica's shoreline. Though this is a global issue, Coral Project's founders have chosen the Oracabessa Bay to launch this initiative because of the milestones and community-minded work at the Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary.
Coral Projects has three purposes:
1 — to create the first underwater Land Art exhibition. This sculpture park features emerging international artists using sustainable and eco-friendly materials permanently installed on the coral reef.
2 — to promote the Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary’s progress in rebuilding the coral and fish populations while supporting the local community.
3 — to globally broadcast the successful model and milestones of OBFS and our model of contemporary art symbiotically living in our oceans.
We are accepting submissions for proposals at our partner site Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary! March 1 to an EXTENDED DEADLINE: MAY 5. Our portal is open here. We can’t wait to see your ideas and bring them to life!
