Trash Free Waters Art Show

Trash Free Waters Art Show

A selection of artist entries from the 2023 Trash Free Waters Art Contest, organized by the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, is now on view at the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center.

Artists from across the Delaware Estuary region were asked to create a piece of artwork related to the theme of Trash Free Waters. Artists could use any medium, but had to create the work on a provided 12″ by 9″ canvas. The goal of the art contest was to bring awareness to the problem of aquatic trash and highlight the ways people can help be part of the solution.

Winners were chosen by public vote at the 2023 Delaware River Festival, held at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia on September 9th.

Winning artwork will be turned into advertisements to help share the message of the importance of keeping our local waterways trash free.

View the 2023 Trash Free Waters Art Contest Wednesday – Saturday from 10am-5pm until early April.
