MMAC unveils enormous Plastic Whale Project

MISSOULA - Visitors to the George and Jane Dennison Theatre were in for a whale of a surprise Thursday as for day only, the Montana Museum of Art and Culture presented the Plastic Whale Project.

The 32 foot long gray whale is made of recycled plastic bags and other trash and was built by 900 youths and adults in Washington state as an education project.

The idea for the project was inspired by a gray whale that washed up on a beach in Washington where scientists found 30 plastic bags in the creature’s stomach.
