Cancun/ Isla Mujeres Underwater Sculpture Museum Update(s)

Follow the links for news and updates on the underwater museum and accompanying sculptures by Jason de Caires Taylor off the shores of Isla Mujeres. Divers and snorkelers already are availing themselves of the initial scenery.

The "GreenMuze" link below shows the figures waiting as stone sentries dockside before being readied for submersion.

The YouTube Video provides the marine side set up.

That's so cool-we snorkeled off Isla last year and there's one little sculpture there. Heading to cancun tomorrow and wish that would be ready to see!

there is a spectacular underwater art/sculpture park off the grenadines. i hope this one is similar. the art acts as a reef for various water creature to attach and thrive. it's constantly changing! while not all natural it's a creative way to replenish areas to offset our dying reefs.
