The Walter Anderson Museum of Art and the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio (through its Plastic Free Gulf Coast program) propose Arts & Environmental Action, a program (Aug 2020-Dec 2021) at St. Martin High School in coastal Jackson County, MS that empowers student-led action through film production, art making, citizen science, and multimedia dialogue targeting the root causes of microplastics and Styrofoam use within the high school cafeteria that negatively impact coastal ecosystems.
