Summer Glass Sundays! Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival
The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM), in cooperation with the Sea Glass and Ocean Arts Festival, is hosting a series of Sea Glass Sundays! this summer on the following Sundays: July 25, August 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29, 2021, from 10 am-5 pm on the museum’s patio overlooking the Harbor. Summer Glass Sundays! are free and open to the public. The Santa Barbara Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival, which usually occurs each year in September, has been cancelled for 2020 and 2021 and will not return until 2022; but you needn’t wait so long - join us at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum.
Summer Glass Sundays! feature handmade, ocean-themed art and authentic sea glass jewelry created by dozens of talented artists. Each year, the festival designates a nonprofit “Giving Back” recipient to receive part of the proceeds. This year, we are proud to announce that SBMM will receive some of the proceeds to help it continue offering its educational programs at no cost to students who attend Title I schools and after-school programs for low-income populations. The only one of its kind in Southern California, the Santa Barbara Sea Glass and Ocean Arts Festival is deeply rooted in the Santa Barbara community, with local artists, the venue, and its commitment to going green.
