Katherine did much to bring the Elemental Arts Initiative to life. She shepherded the beginnings of the Elemental Arts idea of creating a vibrant arts culture in the campus and community of Pomona College, oversaw the setting up of the Initiative, and led the Steering Committee in its first year. Throughout, she led with calmness, generosity, fairness, pragmatism, a twinkle in her eye, and great good humor. She was an inspiration, a mentor, and a friend. Her music, and her laughter, will be missed by all.
The Elemental Arts Steering Committee joins with the Pomona College community, and all who loved Katherine, in sadness at her passing, and in reaching out with our hearts to her family.

How much water is needed to produce our food?
How does water scarcity affect our food security?
Can we produce more food with less water?
These are the questions the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization is focusing attention on in this year’s World Water Day.
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.
