In recognition of Earth Month, the Port Authority bus terminal is hosting a new exhibit that focuses on the collection and clean-up of marine debris from New York City beaches. “The Wash” features 29 photographs framed in a portal motif that resembles a line of washing machines.

The new outdoor mural is the creative inspiration of Brooklyn-based artist Basia Goszczynska working in partnership with the Port Authority and local artist collective ChaShaMa. The public art piece highlights the need to keep marine life clean and healthy.
