Jason de Caires Taylor to Speak on His Underwater Public Art

June 12, 2008 – Salt-Gallery.com and Walsh Metal Works Gallery present British sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor, creator of the world's first underwater sculpture park in Moliniere Bay, Grenada, West Indies. The first of two presentations and discussions will be held at 6 p.m., Wednesday, June 18, at Walsh Metal Works Gallery, 14 AB Peter's Rest, St. Croix. A second presentation will take place at 4 p.m., Saturday, June 21, at Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts, 10 Strand St., Frederiksted, St. Croix.
Taylor's works are designed to create artificial reefs for marine life to colonize and inhabit and change over time with the transformations wrought by ecological processes. His most recent work has been placed underwater along the river Stour in Canterbury, England.
His life-size sculptures have a demonstrated capacity to enhance natural marine habitats. They also promote regional identity and culture through extensive media coverage and provide an avenue for the exploration of the context of art in our society.
