Call to Action on Water Conservation through Art
The City of Los Angeles presented CURRENT:LA Water, the city’s first public art biennial, from July 16 – August 14, 2016. This project included 15 multidisciplinary works of art sited in parks and public spaces along the Los Angeles River, touching all 15 city council districts. Each of the 13 artists involved created artwork that responded to the importance of water and of critical issues related to conservation, ecology and drought. CURRENT:LA Water also engaged public program providers to host site-specific events focused on water-related topics in conjunction with the art installations.
