Nice 30 minute stop to see the neat pieces of art formed out of the ocean garbage. Great message here and a great way to show the hazards of littering in the water. Definitely worth the visit.

Anyone interested in art and the environment should visit this gallery. Fascinating sculptures made from plastic debris collected along the shore as well as a hands-on workshop.

This is an incredible place to visit. I took my chandkids here and they loved it. They were able to explore as well and take part with some of the art projects. It's amazing to see the great creativity others have.

We stopped in Bandon specifically to visit this gallery. The idea that people are out there picking up plastic and then using it to make art is great. The pieces that are in the gallery really are amazing and it took some very creative minds...More

My husband and I wandered into Washed Ashore and were stunned by the beautiful art created from plastic trashed washed ashore. Seeing the abundance of trash makes one want to be more aware of what he uses on a day to day basis. Great activities...More
