Our tree celebrates the vibrant work of internationally renowned artist and conservationist Wyland, host of the PBS program Wyland's Art Studio, and his nationally recognized non-profit foundation. This majestic holiday tree brimming with sea creatures inspires us to protect the precious beauty of our oceans.
Ornaments include access to our KCET Virtual Cinema Series and a whale watching excursion with Wyland himself.
The Wyland Foundation and I are so happy to be part of an occasion like this that is joyous and uplifting. It's a perfect fit for our mission of bringing together arts, people, and the protection of our coasts and waterways. - Wyland, internationally renowned marine life artist and conservationist
