Charles W. Elliot
On the final morning of the IMCC2 local artist Charles W. Elliot, whose painting was used as the logo for the 2nd International Marine Conservation Congress, delivered an impromptu speech about his artwork. Elliot created the painting titled “The Message” in 2000 without the intent of it being used as a logo for the conference. However when he found out about the theme for the conference, “Making marine science matter,” he knew that “The Message” was the perfect image to represent the goals of the conference.
