Curator's Tour of "Water Line" at the Center for Visual Art

5 Oct 2017 | 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Water Line: A Creative Exchange features artists’ critical response to institutional and individual actions that contribute to the water crisis, as well as imaginative solutions, practical and not, for addressing the issue. The exhibition features nineteen artists working in photography, mixed-media installation, video, ceramic and sculpture. These artists are responding to news and reports that not only global communities are facing but are also thinking about those closer to Colorado and surrounding areas. Shrinking glaciers in Rocky Mountain National Park that source the major rivers in Colorado affect us directly, while protesters battle with oil companies for the right to protect rivers in North Dakota, and students in Michigan and Oregon have been consuming contaminated water from drinking fountains at their schools. Waged worldwide for decades, the crisis of access to clean, plentiful water has become an immediate and localized crisis. Learn more about Water Line and its artists on the CVA website.

The curator of Waterline, Cecily Cullen is managing director/curator of CVA, and she will take us through In addition to a topic of vital interest to many Yalies, alumni will also learn about the award-winning Center for Visual Art (CVA), the off-campus art gallery of Metropolitan State University of Denver that shows significant contemporary art and serves as an interactive art laboratory for MSU Denver students and the larger community. The space is at the northern end of the Santa Fe Arts District.
