Skeleton Sea on show at winter ISPO 2012 & Volvo Ocean Race

Munich, Germany – January 26, 2011 – Skeleton Sea is proud to announce it will exhibit a selection of “Keep our Oceans Clean” art during ISPO MUNICH 2012 at the entrance East walkway to halls B & C, scheduled to take place in the Bavarian capital from 29 January to 1 February 2012.

As the leading international sports business trade show with more than 2,200 exhibitors presenting to more than 80,000 visitors from over 100 countries, ISPO MUNICH represents the perfect platform for Skeleton Sea to reach out to like-minded people that share our passion for the environment.

A selection of key Skeleton Sea works of art will be on display during the trade show in Munich, including the Roxy Mermaid supported, Msambweni Ark and the Abyss. In addition, the exhibition at ISPO MUNICH will also welcome works from acclaimed artist Fran Crowe, our recently added guest artist from the United Kingdom.

Looking beyond ISPO MUNICH, this year will also see our continued involvement in the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12, which kicked off in the Spanish port of Alicante in October 2011 and which will culminate in Galway, Ireland some 39,000 nautical miles later in July 2012.

The Volvo Ocean Race (VOR) will set the scene for Skeleton Sea to exhibit a selection of art pieces highlighting the ‘Keep our Oceans Clean’ campaign.

The traveling exhibition, erected in the Volvo Ocean Race Village, is supported by beach cleaning initiatives as well as educational workshops aimed at providing the general public and school children in particular with an opportunity to create a new installation in every stopover port. Together with the help of volunteers, Skeleton Sea has already created three striking works of art, namely Saludos del Mare in Alicante, Future Sea Aquarium in Cape Town and most recently the Lulu Fish in Abu Dhabi.

The next VOR stop is Sanya, the southernmost city in the People’s Republic of China. From there, VOR and Skeleton Sea will continue on to Auckland, Itajai, Miami, Lisbon, Lorient, and finally Galway.

And until the week after Easter, visitors to the Basque Country will have an opportunity to check out the main Skeleton Sea exhibition in the Basque Biodiversity Center at Torre Madariaga. The final week of the exhibition will also see a beach cleaning workshop taking place in nearby Mundaka, as well as the creation of an creative installation that will remain on display at the Basque Biodiversity Center.
