Gray's Reef Fantastic Fishes Award

The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) held its 30th Annual Sidewalk Arts Festival on Saturday, April 30, 2011 in Forsyth Park. Visitors viewed temporary chalk masterpieces created by SCAD students, alumni and prospective students on the walkways of the historic park in Savannah, GA.

For the seventh year, Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary sponsored a separate category in the festival. The Gray's Reef Fantastic Fishes Award seeks to encourage student artists to find inspiration in the marine environment. With an emphasis on whimsy and biologically accuracy, Gray's Reef promotes art as another way to engage the public on marine issues through non-traditional educational means.

The 2011 award was won by Adela Kang, an illustration major from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. Judges thought her image of a little girl listening to the ocean in a shell captures the spirit of love and stewardship for the ocean.

The image will be used by Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary to represent the 2011 Ocean Film Festival.
