Water Works Art Exhibit 


The School of Art, Design, and Art History will be organizing a juried art exhibit (both undergraduate and graduate) with water as its conceptual theme. The exhibit will run for up to two weeks during March/April 2014 (see left box for exact dates). A public reception will be organized for both university and off campus visitors. Two- and three-dimensional art works will be accepted in a variety of media including more traditional visual arts, photography, information graphics, interactive digital multimedia, and time-based projects. Works may explore a variety of conceptual subthemes ranging from the aesthetic aspects of water to those focusing on the global warming effects on ocean and inland waters, water politics, environmental justice, sustainability and/or ecological water conservation efforts. Creative projects informed through scientific-based inquiry and research will be encouraged and favored. The intended audiences for this event are university students, staff and faculty as well as outside visitors interested in the arts and global environmental issues.


This art exhibit will:

• provide creative educational art and design solutions to promote water conservation of local and regional water resources.

• share creative design, architecture and other visual arts proposals and strategies that promote water sustainability.

• investigate important local and regional water histories, politics and other socioenvironmental aspects of water resource impacts within California and the American Southwest.

• contemplate important environmental and ecological philosophies regarding one of our most important shared natural resources, that without, humans are unable to survive.
