The Art of Clean Water: Exploring the Intersection of Art and Science

Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Detail of a quilt by Jeannie Spears: View from the Guthrie.

The intersection of science and art provides opportunities to engage the community in protecting wetlands, lakes and rivers from pollution for future generations. These critical resources provide drinking water for many communities, recreational spaces, food sources and habitat critical to both humans and wildlife.

There’s a little something for everyone in this presentation by the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization in partnership with the Textile Center. Learn about newly built natural spaces in the Prospect Park Neighborhood, what you can do to protect water resources, and how art can create stewards of our shared waters. Participants will also learn about the Textile Center’s on-site dye garden and kitchen for use in creating their own nature-inspired art. Light refreshments will be provided.

Weather and construction permitting, MWMO staff will guide a walking tour to the new raingarden at the Towerside District Stormwater System following the presentation. Please wear appropriate footwear.
