How do you relate to water in the place where you live?
This exhibition, created in partnership with the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area (National Park Service) and Mississippi Park Connection, illuminates contemporary river relationships of Twin Cities residents, as well as their habits of connection and care for the Mississippi River, shared in their own words.
Exhibition runs October 14th, 2017 – January 14th, 2018
An opening reception and Water Bar preview will be held on Friday, October 13th, from 6 – 9PM at Water Bar & Public Studio, 2518 Central Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418.
This is the first exhibition at the new Water Bar & Public Studio storefront in Northeast Minneapolis.
About the Artists
In 2016 photographers Zoe Prinds-Flash and Crystal Liepa, and public artist Colin Kloecker, spent a summer visiting with people along the 72-mile stretch of the Mississippi River National River & Recreation Area, a National Park that winds through the Twin Cities. They photographed and interviewed over 25 people, each with a unique river story. Selections from this project are permanently installed at the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area Visitor Center in the Science Museum of Minnesota. This exhibition expands on that work and asks viewers to consider their own relationships with the Mississippi River.
