Thinkaboutwater.com is a collective of ecological artists and activists who join together to interpret, celebrate, and defend water. Created by Fredericka Foster in early 2020, the website features a talented selection of artists, writers, and activists, as well as pertinent news and actions on various water issues. This exhibition, also titled Think About Water (TAW), is the first group show of the collective, presented in virtual space through an interactive VR gallery and curated by TAW member Doug Fogelson.
Celebrating our connection to water over a range of mediums and innovative projects that honor this precious element, Think About Water serves as a call-to-action and invites viewers to a deeper look at the individual artists work—easily accessed by links to their websites and accompanying statements. With strong backgrounds of acclaimed work and commitment, TAW artists are creatively bringing awareness to a vital aspect of the ecosystem and therefore the entire community of life.
Please join us on World Water Day, March 22nd at 6:30 PM CT, for a Zoom opening where the artists will speak briefly about their work via the link below. The correlation of the opening date is intended to raise awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without safe access to water. Think About Water invites you to view the show without leaving the comfort of your own space!
Opening: March 22, 6:30 PM CT via Zoom
