Following a long winter of ice and wind, an array of detritus can be found along the region's beaches. Cleaning those beaches has become a passion for artist Alexis Oltmer. On WBFO's Press Pass, Jessica Marinelli and Newell Nussbaumer discuss how Oltmer is recruiting volunteers to help with the cleanup and her plans to transform beach debris into a work of art.
