Thinking about Water: Artists Reflect

March 22, 2017 — June 30, 2017

The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum proudly announces the opening of a new exhibit entitled Thinking about Water: Artists Reflect

Timed to coincide with the United Nations’ celebration of World Water Day on March 22, the Waterworks invites you to reflect on our most precious natural resource: water. The artists brought together for this show take a deep look at the intrinsic beauty of water, and consider the impacts of climate change and global warming that threaten the drinking water of so many across the globe.

The exhibit include works by Diana Arcadipone, Isabel Beavers, Cheryl Clinton, Laura Fischman, Mags Harries, Trintje Jansen, Jaclyn Klein, Jacqueline Mancini, Judy Mason, Katherine McVety, David Mussina, Anne Neely, John Redick, Karin Rosenthal, Nan Rumpf, Jeannie Simms, Sarah Slavick, Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz, and Sherley Soraya Wijaya. 

See Executive Director Barbara Elfman and Guest Curator Lauren Kaufmann describe the exhibit in this YouTube video.
