Art Benefit Raises More Than $50,000

Report by Erin Swinfard, Sea No Evil event organizer

On Saturday, July 12th, the 2nd Annual Sea No Evil Art Benefit, an art  show dedicated to supporting the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society,  raised more then $50,000 - all of which will go to saving the  beautiful  creatures of the ocean.

Over 1500 people converged upon the prestigious Riverside Art Museum  in  the historical downtown area of Riverside, and took over the entire  facility's three floors in support of the art show. Matt Costa -  former  pro-skateboarder and musician on surfer Jack Johnson's label -  entertained the crowd, while Shepherd Fairey was in house, spinning  records and signing his one of a kind wood prints donated to the show.

Through the diversity of the art and art lovers, over 90% of the art  donated was sold on the night of the show. Many of the art pieces from  local and international artists were collected through supporters RVCA  Clothing, ANP Quarterly and To Die For Clothing.

Captain Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, was  on hand and gave a passionate talk on the current status of global  oceanic conservation.
