These photographs are from our community based collaborative show, entitled #WEAREWATER.  We asked our artists to “see themselves as water” and build water themed selfie backdrops to demonstrate how to be part of the solution. Numerous hands and minds of all ages worked together to bring us this show to represent the water in which we live by, work by and strive to preserve and protect daily.

We want to extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation for granting us the funds to help us continue our good work this year!
