What Color is Water?

What Color is Water?  Is a social practice art opportunity working towards community water quality awareness.  Hosted by Virginia Tech Perspective Gallery’s Art Reach Program, the project will culminate in a site specific art installation at Perspective Gallery at Squires Student Center in spring 2018.

Clean water is an irreplaceable resource required for life.  Water reflects a society’s priorities, yet every day we read about how our earth’s most precious resource is being degraded, commodified, or becoming less available to the earths’ inhabitants.  “What Color is Water?,” is a collaboration between water quality education programs and the residents of the region to “connect” with water in a way which encourages us to see our most fragile resource, as clean, refreshing, pure, and in need of our protection and good stewardship.

Participants will create 9” x 9” watercolor of their perceived “color of water.”  Each artist will sign their name and donate the work for a site specific installation in Perspective Gallery to be installed and exhibited during spring 2018. 

Open to all ages and ability levels. Contact rboucher@vt.edu if you’d like to participate.

Art reach is Student Engagement and Campus Life's community outreach program through the arts.
