Ocean Day

Coordinated by NFCC’s John Quigley, Ocean Day is an annual celebration and call to action for protection of the world’s oceans. In May and June, school children from San Francisco, San Diego, Huntington Beach, Los Angeles, and Humboldt County create aerial art projects during the Kids Ocean Day Adopt-A-Beach cleanups. John is a pioneer in aerial art, in which people stand in position, and from above form an image and/or message: literally formed from their bodies. It’s a compelling expression of passion and dedication. John develops messages and themes for each art display, conducts in-person training sessions for local organizations, and personally sets the sand and lays out the aerial art frame in Los Angeles.
