BREMERTON — A sculpture makes a statement at Olympic College in Bremerton.

It’s a sculpture of a baby gray whale made out of plastic bags and other recycled materials.

Art professor Marie Weichman told the Kitsap Sun she got the idea for the exhibit after hearing about the debris found in the stomach a dead gray whale that washed ashore in Seattle.

The sculpture became a project for art, marine science and design students. It goes on display Thursday in the college’s Art Building.
