About the exhibition:
Coinciding with Earth Day 2019, the Walter Anderson Museum of Art mounts an exhibition of contemporary art examining the relationship between people and their waterways. Inspired by Walter Anderson’s excursions in and depictions of both salt and fresh water, this exhibition is guest curated by John Ruskey of Quapaw Canoe Company, avid adventurer, visual artist, and steward of the Mississippi River.
Water, Water takes its name from a verse from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," one of Walter Anderson’s favorite poems. The exhibition explores the myriad ways that societies interact with the water – sometimes beautifully, sometimes at odds. The exhibition is on view through May 3.
