Created by Wyland for the Eco-Adventure Center, the Wyland Eco Artist Program Debuts Summer 2017

DANA POINT, Calif. – June 12, 2017 – World-renowned marine life artist Wyland, in partnership with the Eco Adventure Center at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, has custom-curated a creative experience aimed at ocean appreciation expressed through the arts.

This unique program, which makes its debut in summer 2017, immerses people young and old in the wonder of the ocean through art appreciation, film, and hands-on activities like sculpting and drawing. Additionally, guests can create keepsakes to remember their time by the ocean and learn more about Wyland’s mission to encourage global stewardship of our ocean, lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands. No prior experience is necessary. Trained naturalists will guide guests every step of the way. All that is needed is a little creativity and a spirit for adventure.

“We are excited about our partnership with Wyland,” announced Lyn Evins, Director of Resort Experiences at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. “His passion and dedication to the arts and the environment mirror the strong commitment to our community and our planet through the Eco-Adventure Center’s comprehensive programming where guests have the opportunity to become advocates of protecting and preserving the environment for future generations,” she added.


For more than four decades, Wyland has captivated the world with his spectacular paintings, sculptures, photography and landmark Whaling Wall murals. With half a million collectors around the world, award-winning art galleries, and the ongoing efforts of his non-profit foundation in support of global water and ocean conservation, Wyland has done more than any other artist to raise awareness of the beauty of life on our blue planet.
