- About -

m Longobardi’s parents, an ocean lifeguard and the Delaware state diving champion, connected her from an early age to water life. After discovering mountains of plastic on remote Hawaiian shores in 2006, she founded the Drifters Project, centralizing the artist as culture worker/activist/researcher. Now a global collaborative entity, Drifters Project has removed tens of thousands of pounds of material from the natural environment and re-situated it as communicative social sculpture. Her multidisciplinary studio-based and social practice ranges from paintings and collage to photography, large-scale sculpture, installation, public actions and performance. Winner of the prestigious Hudgens Prize, Longobardi has been featured in National Geographic, SIERRA magazine, the Weather Channel, multiple films and in exhibitions around the world. As Oceanic Society’s Artist-In-Nature, she co-leads expeditions to remote and beautiful places, working with participants and communities in addressing plastic and its environmental impact. Currently living in Atlanta, GA, she is Distinguished Professor and teaches at Georgia State University.
