Queen of the Sea

Lenexa Juliet Frances Morais, Artist

“I am so thrilled to contribute to this project; It’s fantastic that our art can bring attention to turtle conservation and protecting
ecosystem, while also representing Galveston’s eclectic art culture.”
“Art brings attention to turtle conservation and our art culture”

Moody Gardens, Sponsor

“Moody Gardens has been a long-time partner in supporting local sea turtle conservation efforts, so the opportunity to be a part of the Turtles About Town project was an easy decision. Working with a collaboration of like-minded organizations and individuals to bring attention to the challenges that sea turtles face and everyday actions that can be taken to improve the natural world around us is a core tenet of our mission. Beyond that, being a part of a city-wide public art project that showcases our quirky island lifestyle is a refreshing reminder of why we work and live here.”
