The ARTSealab Festival is a collaboration between Art Does It (ADI), a nonprofit arts organization, and Alabama’s Marine Environmental Sciences Consortium, the Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL).

ARTSealab’s mission is to enhance the public's understanding of the ecological challenges facing the northern Gulf of Mexico and its coastline through the dialogs of art, science, and folk life.

The ARTSealab festival will kick-off with the Forks and Corks culinary gala on Friday, October 26 at the Estuarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. The event includes a seafood competition between Mobile County Public School's Culinary Arts and Hospitality students and aquaculture education. 

On October 27 and 28, the Dauphin Island Sea Lab campus will host a two-day indoor and outdoor arts festival with works related to the marine and estuarine life of Alabama. There will be live music, hands-on art and science learning experiences, a 3D marine debris competition, community booths, and more.

Middle and high school students are encouraged to participate in the online arts competition, Love Our Gulf. Details to enter can be found here.
