PangeaSeed & Tokyo-based vinyl toy designer Cometdebris (Koji Harmon) are pleased to announce their latest shark-saving effort: Sametan – Don’t Tread on Me. This upcoming weekend at Spoke Art in San Francisco, they will host a one of a kind art exhibition featuring 30 custom Sametan vinyl figures designed by 30 global artists including Frank Kozik, Buff Monster, Jenn Porreca and many more.
In addition to the art exhibition, PangeaSeed will host an exclusive screening of Rob Stewart’s latest award-winning documentary, “Revolution”. The “Ocean Love Film Festival” will take place at Spoke Art Gallery , March 30, 2013 – 7-9 pm.
Through this unique event, they aim to generate greater awareness for the global plight of sharks and the importance of our oceans via creative and entertaining avenues in order to raise critical funding to support PangeaSeed’s ongoing efforts and groundbreaking projects.
Proceeds raised through the sales of the vinyl figures will help fund PangeaSeed’s 2014 “Year of Living Dangerously” art tour of Asia. Because Asia is ground zero for the trade and consumption of many endangered species, the 2014 Asian event will reach six major Asian cities extending their core message to critical audiences.
The tour with over 50 participating artists and film-makers aims to educate communities about these endangered species and encourage actions we can take to save these animals from extinction. Visit pangeaseed.org for more details!
