The Wyland Foundation & Skinit Team Up

Founded by renowned environmental artist Wyland, the Wyland Foundation has helped children and families around the nation to rediscover how important healthy oceans and waterways are through public art programs, classroom science education, and live events. The foundation, which gives children the tools they need to become more creative, positive, and solution-oriented, has worked directly with more than one million children since its introduction in 1993.

In 2008, twenty-seven years after Wyland’s quest began, the artist and the Wyland Foundation completed the monumental goal of painting 100 life-size public marine murals. These murals were painted in life-size dimensions to increase appreciation and understanding for aquatic habitats and the life within. Perhaps, most importantly, they have reshaped attitudes about marine life conservation.

“We know now that water connects all the countries of the world,” Wyland says. “Our goal with these projects over the last three decades has been to convey the urgency of conservation issues to the public. The health of our ocean and waterways are in jeopardy, not to mention the thousands of marine animals and plants that face extinction if we do nothing.” 

The completed Whaling Wall campaign is one of the largest art-in-public-places projects in history, spanning five continents, 13 countries, and 79 cities around the globe.

This month, Skinit teamed up with Wyland to help support the Wyland Foundation. For the entire month of September when you buy a Wyland Skin, 10% of the proceeds will be given back to the Wyland Foundation for environmental education. Check out some of the Wyland skins below…
