Provincetown, Massachusetts: Mama Shug: Shark Made of Plastic Trash

Herring Cove Beach

Province Lands Rd, Provincetown, MA
Take US-6 until it ends. At the brown sign for Herring Cove Beach turn right, then a quick left at the next Herring Cove Beach sign, then left again past the gatehouse. You'll see some gray buildings ahead on the right. Park in the lot just beyond them. The shark is along the entrance walk leading to the buildings.
Mama Shug: Shark Made of Plastic Trash

Cindy Pease Roe created a life-size, 14-foot-long shark out of colorful washed-ashore plastic trash: cigarette lighters, sneakers, swim goggles, etc. The teeth are the broken-off tips of cheap beach umbrellas. Unveiled June 2023.
