Galleries > The Water Archive Project

Water Archive is a large-scale, participatory exhibition project being developed by artists Susan Hoffman Fishman and Leslie Sobel. They have titled the project an “archive” because like an archive, which is a consolidation of historic records for current and future generations on a given topic, it will consist of a comprehensive collection of 12” x 12” works of art, representing the memories, impressions and emotions about water in this era of climate change, by a group of 25+ nationally and internationally known artists. The project will also include a community based component with workshops focused on hyperlocal water issues at each venue. The goals of the project are to emphasize the importance of water for human and non-human survival as we face ever decreasing water resources and to encourage participants to become engaged as stewards of water in their own local communities.
