Sea Walls Bimini

Sponsored by
Virgin Voyages

 

The Bimini Sea Walls project was created in response to the hopes and concerns expressed by Bimini residents with plans for increased tourism on the island.

Through the power of public art, the landmark murals highlight what makes Bimini unique and special, while also addressing specific environmental concerns, such as waste management, protecting the ocean and ocean life, and island beautification.

The Bimini Sea Walls project aims to ignite conversation and serve as educational tools that build community around the common cause of creating positive change and protecting the island’s natural resources.

The mural concepts, locations, and youth outreach were created through a collaborative process with community leaders and residents.

Sponsored by Virgin Voyages, we hope the Bimini Sea Walls project will be embraced by the community and cherished by all who see them. With paint support by Smog Armor carbon-absorbing paint.
