Support PFG in the time of COVID-19

As a lot of artists and small businesses are suffering during the current coronavirus pandemic around the world, Mai Ryuno - Social Practice Artist/Founder of Play Full Ground - also had to close the studio due to the California State's Shelter in Place order.

Fortunately, she has received personal requests from supporters of her art and PFG for these playful & colorful Monterey Sardine Pillows for them to own with joy, hope, and positivity and/or share the same with others, especially in light of these challenging times now.

Please welcome these happy fish friends to your home or send them to someone whom you love and support socially-engaged artist/art and PFG for the future creative artwork, learning, and experiences.

"#HappyMontereySardines" Project

Spread happiness, positivity, and colors to the world

from the PFG community during the social distancing


This is our first "online" participatory art project in which you are invited to take part and this is how:

  1. Take a photo of your sardine pillow and/or your small joys in life on the Monterey Peninsula or your community

  2. Post the photo on Instagram with #HappyMontereySardines

  3. Tag @playfullground - I will share your post on our page!


You don't do social media/Instagram? - NO PROBLEM!
