About Water Works
On view: February 10 - May 27, 2018

The environment is a key issue in today’s society, and water is the vital component that sustains life on the planet. Artists have used water as a medium to create works of art, investigated its special properties (liquidity, transparency, movement, reflection), interrogated its role in the spiritual and psychological aspects of our lives, and advocated for the preservation of clean water. Through works in a variety of media, Water Works aims to explore how we view and interact with water, and raises awareness of the importance of conserving clean water for future generations.
