On Wednesday, July 26, Lost Art of Love Letters and the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum will host a community evening of ocean awareness, film, art, and drinks.

Attendees are provided inspiration and supplies to create handmade Love Letters to the Sea. The letters empower participants to act as a voice for the ocean, creating political change and ocean protection. The heartfelt letters and handmade envelopes, decorated with marine creatures, will be delivered to world dignitaries & global decision makers by Jean-Michel Cousteau of Ocean Futures Society and Jack Johnson Musician/Environmentalist.

As guests mingle and design their love letters, the SB Maritime Museum will be showing the 30-minute documentary, “The Smog of the Sea”, which artistically chronicles the 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea with marine scientist Marcus Eriksen. The crew consisted of renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician/environmentalist Jack Johnson, spear-fisher Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham who all became citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the world’s oceans.

Before the film Marine Biologist & Educator Holly Lohuis of Ocean Futures Society will be giving a brief visual presentation of her underwater experiences diving around the world with Jean-Michel Cousteau for over two decades.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at
