From the LA Times
“In celebration of the Surfrider Foundationâ€™s 25th Anniversary Gala, held in fall 2009 in downtown L.A., the organization asked 25 contemporary artists to interpret 25 of the worldâ€™s most legendary surf breaks. The artworks were a part of the third installment of the nonprofitâ€™s â€œArt for the Oceansâ€ auction series.
â€œWe wanted to pay tribute to the ocean,â€ said Jim Moriarty, CEO of the Surfrider Foundation. â€œThese are iconic waves in surf culture. What better way to celebrate our 25th anniversary than by celebrating them through art?â€
