Marine mammal art show

Bridging science, art, and beer!


Event Details:
MAY 2022 



** Percentage of beer proceeds for the evening are donated back to LMMN!



Join us for an evening where artists, environmentalists, and beer drinkers can come together over one basic principle: we love our backyard and want to protect it for future generations!


This event is four-fold:

1) Drinks for Dolphins! Palmetto Brewery is donating a portion of beer sales back to LMMN

2) Aspiring artists (elementary-college) will be participating in an art show. The finalist from each category will be chosen at the end of the evening and given a prize.

3) Lowcountry professional artists will be set up on-site with their pieces for sale! A percentage of sales will go right back to supporting local marine mammals. 

4) LMMN staff and volunteers will be on sight with information, merchandise, and bones!

Come show some love and support for art/science/beer sake!
