The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM), in cooperation with the Sea Glass and Ocean Arts Festival, is hosting the last summer Sea Glass Pop-Up on Saturday, August 13, 2022, on the museum’s patio overlooking the Harbor. This event is free and open to the public from 10 am-5 pm. The Santa Barbara Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival, which is traditionally held each year in September, has been cancelled for 2022. Its organizers will hold an event at the Carpinteria Arts Center on November 19, 2022, but sea glass aficionados and collectors needn’t wait so long. They can now find many of the artists at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum on Saturday, August 13.
Summer Sea Glass Pop-Ups feature handmade, ocean-themed art and authentic sea glass jewelry created by dozens of talented artists. Each year, the festival designates a nonprofit 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 the museum’s commitment to going green.
