THE SEA SHEPHERD CONSERVATION SOCIETY
IN CONJUNCTION WITH RVCA AND MONSTER MEDIA ARE PROUD TO PRESENT
SEA NO EVIL, AN ART BENEFIT
Raising money and awareness for the protection and conservation of the world’s oceans, the 2nd annual
“Sea No Evil” Art Benefit is set to become a major event on the art and conservation calendar in years to come.
SEA NO EVIL, SAVE THE WHALES….
On Saturday 12th July 2008 the Sea No Evil Art Benefit will take over the Riverside Art Museum located in the Historic Downtown District of Riverside, California. An art benefit set up to raise funds for The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, (an institution committed to the eradication of pirate whaling, poaching, shark finning, unlawful habitat destruction, and violations of established laws in the world's oceans), Sea No Evil will donate all proceeds from the sale of art.
Captain Paul Watson, founder of The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, will speak about the importance of his life’s work. Renowned artist Shepard Fairey will DJ in the art gallery and acclaimed singer songwriter Matt Costa will perform on the roof of the museum. Free drinks will be provided to guests compliments of Sambazon, VeeV, and Imperial.
“We are committed to continually raising awareness for the preservation of our oceans,” says co-producer Erin Swinfard. “I’m blown away by the enthusiasm and support from the artists who have donated their art and time.”
“RVCA is honored to be a part of this special event. Not only is this a worthy cause, but more importantly a way RVCA and the arts community can truly give back to the environment and the creatures of the ocean” says RVCA’s Global Marketing Director Skye McRae.
The museum will host a two-week preview prior to the benefit, and donated art will be available for purchase through silent auction bidding on Saturday 12th July 2008.

About Sea No Evil Art Benefit
Sea No Evil came about when Riverside residents Derric and Erin Swinfard decided to take up a cause and use their networking for the good of the world’s oceans. They rounded up friends, artists, and business owners to create an art benefit that raised more than $30,000. For its second installment, Sea No Evil has grown to include support from leading lifestyle brand RVCA, musical talent and an impressive list of artists.
