VB Surf will be showcasing Maggie Boelter’s art from 6-10 pm at 38 Washington. Refreshments will be provided. Maggie is a Venice local who grew up swimming at Tower 26 and roller skating with her dog. She attends University of Michigan and is studying environmental science. “My work explores the relationship a young girl has with the ocean–the human-made pollution and the detrimental effect of plastics are conveyed throughout the works and compel viewers to share her concerns for the sea life. I chose to show her lifespan and how she dedicated her life to saving what she loves most.”
