2023 River Warriors

By Artist News

Rivers are our Earth’s arteries

They are lifelines for millions of people, animals and ecosystems –
and all of them ultimately lead to the ocean.

Our seas and oceans have no choice but to receive what rivers bring them, and in the modern world that often includes toxins, heavy metals, raw sewage, plastic waste … whatever moving water picks up on its journey.

Which is why we are celebrating these brave River Warriors who dedicate themselves to protecting, defending and recognising our precious river systems.

From Fredericka:

I am pleased to join Think About Water Artists Basia Irland, Kelsey Leonard, Meridel Rubenstein, and Stacy Levy as a River Warrior, this honor given to us by the Lewis Pugh Foundation.

The Rivers Exhibition at the Garrison Institute

By Artist News

The Garrison Institute held an art exhibition, public open house on Saturday, April 29, 2023

The exhibit featured the work of Paz Perlman and artists from the Think About Water collective – all critically acclaimed artists known for their powerful bodies of work that grapple with today’s most profound societal and environmental challenges. The exhibition promised to be a thought-provoking and visually stunning experience.

Perlman and Foster’s projects harness the intersection of art, ecology, and meditation to deepen the viewers’ sense of connection, awareness, and responsibility towards the environment – and to hopefully ignite action. Their art recently provided the impactful visual element to the Garrison Institute’s 2023 Pathways to Planetary Health Symposium, which united scientists, economists, ethicists, communicators, and leaders from across fields to share ideas that lead to tangible altruistic and environmental action.

Thinking About Water on World Water Day

Susan Hoffman Fishman

Think About Water (TAW) is a collective of 28 international eco-artists and activists whose work addresses global water issues. The organization scheduled its first exhibition, also called “Think About Water,” to open on March 22, in commemoration of World Water Day. Originating in 1993, World Water Day celebrates water, calls attention to the 2.2 billion people around the world without access to clean water, and urges individuals to become engaged in efforts to combat the global water crisis. Similarly, the goal of TAW and its member artists is to “interpret, celebrate, and defend water.”
