Live Performance Art at Sea Shepherd Headquarters in Amsterdam
Friday, Apr 12, 2019
Starting next Thursday, two artists will begin a three-day live performance painting a mural on Sea Shepherd Global’s Amsterdam headquarters, located between the Museum Quarter and Vondel Park. The building is also home to the Sea Shepherd Store and Tattoo Studio, where profits from both help fund the marine conservation organization’s direct-action campaigns to protect marine wildlife and ocean habitats around the world.
The mural, whose marine wildlife themed design remains under wraps until the event, is a collaboration between Belgian artist and Sea Shepherd volunteer Willem Cattersel, and Dutch artist and Sea Shepherd Global Artistic Director Geert Vons.
The public are welcome to stop on by during the creation of the mural, Thursday, Friday and Saturday April 18-20 from 11am-5pm. There will be special limited-edition prints and exclusive tee shirts made for the event on sale in the store.
