Art League of Hilton Head is partnering with Sea Turtle Patrol HHI, a nonprofit organization that monitors and supports the nesting and hatching of sea turtles on Hilton Head beaches, to help raise both awareness and funds for this endangered species. A special three-day exhibit featuring sea turtle-themed artwork created by local artists will be held at Art League Academy July 18-20, with a closing reception on July 20, 5-7pm.

“We named the exhibit Halfway Home because we’ll be right at the halfway point of the sea turtle season,” says Kristen

Murray Sease

McIntosh, Executive Director of Art League of Hilton Head. “The artists have created some beautiful pieces for sale, and we’re thrilled to be able to help such a worthy cause.”

“We patrol the beach daily from May through October, protecting our sea turtle population and educating beachgoers throughout the season,” says Amber Kuehn, Sea Turtle Patrol HHI’s Director. “Our volunteer staff depends on the support of the local community. Partnering with Art League means the world to us.”

The exhibit will be held at Art League Academy, located at 106 Cordillo Parkway. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
