Underwater sculpture museum forms coral reef

This collection will make up an extraordinary — and functional — work of art for an underwater exhibit off the coast of Mexico. Known as The Museo Subacuático de Arte de Cancún (MUSA), this project is designed to be an engaging attraction for both tourists and sea creatures alike.

The project is intended to alleviate pressure on nearby natural reefs by drawing the attention of the hundreds of thousands of tourists that arrive every year to the national park. Founded by Jaime Gonzalez Cano, director of Isla Mujeres National Park, and Roberto Diaz Abraham, president of the Cancun Nautical Association, this underwater sculpture exhibit will also serve as an artificial coral reef.
