Our current waters are rising and getting warmer. They fuel the intensification of hurricanes and the flooding of our lands. Art helps to create a conversation by making the invisible visible. Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse, a team of artists, will carry you through their fascination with water and water-related phenomenon and issues through this presentation. You will see some of their early work through to their current work from the Expanding Waters exhibition. Expanding Waters creates a story in 2 and 3 dimensions about the current state of our warming waters and ways to bring our world back into balance The presence of art is particularly important when considering the philosopher Heraclitus’ famous saying that “you cannot step into the same river twice.”
Expanding Waters is part of a conversation series, Let’s Talk About Water, convened by Florida Humanities to celebrate water as a life-sustaining source.
