One of the Elemental Arts themes is WATER . Here is an inspiring example of how one artist brought her awareness of water issues and her art to the community at large.
Art for Water is an organization founded and directed by artist Christine Destrempes in New Hampshire. Art for Water draws attention to global and local water issues through monumental public-participation art projects.
13,699 is an installation by Ms. Destrempes made of clear plastic, recycled, water bottle caps representing each person who dies every day from preventable, water-related diseases. Pictured is an installation at Annmarie Garden Art Center & Sculpture Park in Solomons, Maryland, October 2010. A crocheted coral reef by Mary Ellen Croteau with Aviva Alter and Mary Buczyk from Chicago is in the background.
