Water, Water: A Pop-up Invitational
April 18th, 2019
Thursday, April 18 – Saturday, May 4, 2019
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 examines the myriad ways that water and human societies interact – sometimes beautifully, sometimes at odds. 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, avid adventurer, visual artist, and steward of the Mississippi River.
