A calamity is a disaster “marked by great harm and lasting distress and suffering.” Calamity Clown, created with unmodified pieces of plastic debris collected from North County San Diego beaches, represents the harmful impact that plastic pollution has on ocean ecosystems and the distress and suffering it causes marine life. Calamity Clown also signifies the urgency of the problem and the fact that there is no time to clown around. Individuals can help stop the plastic pollution calamity by reusing, reducing, and refusing single-use items such as plastic water bottles, take-away cups, straws, stirrers, utensils, and styrofoam to-go containers.
Calamity Clown will be on display this Saturday in downtown Vista during Backfence Society’s Bozo Show: Group Art Show for Clowns and Jokers. Join us at 110 S. Citrus on November 24th from 6:00pm-9:00pm for a fun evening filled with with art, food, drinks, crafts, music—and clowns!
