The Glass Float Project

June 1 @ 8:00 am - October 31 @ 11:30 pm

When Eben Horton conceived of The Glass Float Project in 2011, he had no idea that it would become the entity it is today. What began as a fun personal project intended to allow him to spend more time on Block Island has become a world-famous art installation that has changed many lives. A team of volunteers, some of whom began as die-hard “Orbivores,” hide the floats, a few at a time, from June until October and sometimes beyond. The floats are hidden on beaches and greenway trails or other public areas. Hiders are conscientious and never hide them in the dunes, bluffs or other ecologically sensitive areas. Trail-hidden floats can be found within a few feet of the trail, and floats hidden on the beaches will be between the bluffs and the high tide line.
