"Plastic Ocean" 

The 2016 Oceans Institute exhibit focuses on plastics pollution in our oceans. The visual storytelling and physical show has been skillfully curated local artist by Scott Bluedorn.  Other contributing artists are Cindy Pease Roe, Billy Strong, Peter Spacek and Rossa Cole.  Our season's roster of artists have the common thread of creating their work with recycled and locally found plastic material.  These artists, along with the collection of marine biologists, sustainable fashion designers, ocean lovers and adventurers, "Plastic Ocean" aims to educate, excite and inspire visitors to imagine an existence with less waste.  

Our Mission


The mission of the Montauk Oceans Institute is to build community, educate, and heighten awareness surrounding our local ocean’s health through an interactive museum space and outdoor oceanfront amphitheater in Montauk, Long Island.

The MOI seeks to execute installations, interactive exhibitions, and programs that highlight and explore the wonders and environmental complexities of the ocean. We serve as a platform that enables the organizations, foundations, policymakers, and philanthropic voices of our community to pool their findings and ideas in solving today’s oceanographic issues.
