|"Water Water Everywhere and Not a Drop That's Clean"|
This mixed media sculpture stands as a testament to the state of our waters, in so many
parts of the world. I created it several years ago, from a porcelain sink reminiscent of drinking fountains in elementary schools. It's something like I would have been drinking out of as a child in the 1950s, before pollution from factories and farms changed the ponds, lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans as we knew them.
An old Barbie doll, dressed in map of the world, covered with a found plastic water bottle, features a faucet for a head. From there, strips of shredded textiles flow, some in colors that we don't wish to imagine when we take a sip. And yet, in so many parts of our world today, water filters are necessary to create safe, drinkable water.
Here in San Miguel de Allende, one way we can address contamination and its associated health risks is by supporting Caminos de Agua, whose mission it is to provide communities at risk, with access to clean water. If you aren't familiar with this org, please click on the link to see all the work being done, and why it's so important for the people in our area.
Because I believe in this organization and the work they do, I offer this sculpture, "Water Water Everywhere..." as my commitment to their project. Your purchase of this art means 100% of the proceeds goes to Caminos de Agua. For details and price, please email me at email@example.com. Your payment will go directly to CdA.
Let's all use World Water Day to think about what we can do to keep our waters safe for this generation and those to come.
