Featured Silent Auction Items

“Ocean Calling” signed and numbered Wyland lithograph.

In this special edition, limited lithograph, Wyland pays homage to the creatures who depend on pristine marine habitats for their very survival.

“When I’m diving, there are always those moments when time seems to freeze,” Wyland says. “The dolphin in this painting is a perfect example of that. I wanted to capture the playfullness and curiosity of the young dolphin, which seems to be enjoying its first encounter of the human-kind.”

Value: $790
Donated By: Wyland Foundation
