Marin Event: Celebrate Earth Day at Stinson Beach

APRIL 23, 2016, 11am – 3pm

The word EARTH has ART Embedded right in it!

so what better way to celebrate Earth Day than by creating art on the beach…

Join Zach Pine (the founder of this beautiful and creative celebratory event) community members, professional artists, and passers-by construct sculpture using sand, rocks, shells, seaweed and other beach treasures.

Event Details:

The gathering will take place rain, shine, or fog.

The event is at the south end of the beach (to the left as you face the ocean).

Come anytime 11am -3pm.

All ages welcome.

Unfortunately no dogs are allowed at this end of the beach

 Carpooling is a great option especially on Earthday

During this playful event, participants work alone and in groups, transforming the beach into an evolving outdoor sculpture gallery. The intention behind the event is to create an experience that will inspire and energize people to care for and protect the earth not only on Earth Day, but throughout the year.

The event starts with beach cleanup/habitat restoration. Bags and gloves are supplied for cleanup.

A bit about the Founder Zach Pine

In 2005, environmental artist Zach Pine was searching for an Earth Day event that was in keeping with his socially engaged art practice: creating models and methods for collective creativity; connecting people of all ages with each other and with the natural world; and inspiring joy, spontaneity, and environmental action. He decided to host a small gathering at Stinson Beach: the First Annual Free Create-With-Nature Earth Day Celebration. Thanks to the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service Golden Gate National Recreation Area, he was able to create an all-volunteer event combining beach cleanup with creative activities aimed at

strengthening our connections to each other and the natural world.

As a photographer, writer, psychotherapist and nature lover, I am passionate about living in Marin County, CA. The perfect home base, Fairfax, CA is where I get out daily on the miles and miles of open space and find inspiration and plot my next journey out of Marin into the world. More about Mary... Mary is a New York Native who has been living in Northern CA for the past 20 years. She is a "Creative Image Photographer" infusing digital images with innovative techniques. Her favorite spot to take photos is muddled amidst the trees of Marin County CA, or in an exotic urban environment near the ocean, under the sky, and completely in awe. Mary's goal is to capture this scenery, to reach into the mystery of life, into the everyday magic, use the light and the dark as guides, delve into the chaos or the quiet and capture and whittle away at these snapshots, without disrupting their original essence, until they come alive and rich with depth and mood. Her mission is to create unique works of art that bring this depth, mystery, upheaval or serenity to people's walls and homes and ultimately that her work becomes a catalyst to help shift onlookers mood and outlook even if for a moment in time. Her work has been described as dreamy, ethereal, mysterious and mythical and yet also simple and straightforward. Currently her photos are on display at Google Headquarters in California.
