Co-Director of Sea Walls Emeryville 2022
From September 9-19, 2022, PangeaSeed Foundation’s global Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans hosted its first Bay Area project in Emeryville. We produced 15 ocean advocacy murals and hosted various public events to increase interest and engagement around marine stewardship and action within the community. Beyond the curation of purpose-driven, public ocean advocacy art, Sea Walls Emeryville featured free-to-the-public programming curated to help facilitate an ongoing relationship between Emeryville’s community, the murals, and their environment. Activities included youth outreach at the Emeryville Unified School District, a coastal cleanup on International Coastal Clean Up Day (September 17), and mural walking tours guided by Mayor Bauters, making it a well-rounded experience for all ages.
Over the course of 2 years, Alexandra worked alongside the PangeaSeed Foundation team to organize the entirety of the festival. This included fundraising, curating artists, securing walls, forming community partnerships, and organizing public events.
