Artists + Celebrities Make Waves to Benefit La Mer Blue Hearts Oceans Fund for Project 0

Launch Slideshow

From Homer’s Odyssey to Hokusai’s Great Wave, the ocean has inspired artists across epochs and cultures. Project 0 is a global campaign dedicated to restoring and protecting this crucial natural resource for future generations. Fifty influential artists, performers and tastemakers have joined Project 0 in partnership with La Mer to create unique wave sculptures as part of La Mer Wave Walk. Displayed in key locations throughout New York City, these artworks remind viewers of the ocean’s majestic beauty and our collective need to protect its marine biodiversity. Ten of these fantastic waves as well as a custom surfboard by painter and avid surfer Julian Schnabel will be offered in a live auction at Sotheby’s on 21 June, and online bidding at Paddle8 will be open for additional sculptures. All proceeds will benefit La Mer Blue Heart Oceans Fund for Project 0.
