Surfing Madonna Goes Global Starting With California's Pebble Beach Area
SMOP has identified the deadliest Big Wave Surfing sites and is challenging their surrounding communities to engage local artists to create Surfing Madonna art, carrying on the mission to raise awareness of issues affecting the world’s oceans.
Surfing Madonna Goes Global Starting With California
So far, Mavericks in Northern California, Waimea and Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii, South Africa, and even Tahiti are on board with the idea.
Patterson hopes Madonna’s message will live on through her future sisters, no matter what they look like.
“Maybe it’s going to be a painting, as opposed to a glass mosaic, since most people wouldn’t want to spend nine months to make a 10 foot square mosaic,” said Patterson. “If you can have art wake people up, that is a huge thing.”
