Artist Mary Miss brings her exhibit FLOW: Can You See the River? to the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Conceived by artist Mary Miss, FLOW: Can You See the River? is a city-wide public art project that reveals how ordinary activities are connected to the history, ecology, origin and potential of the White River water system. The project appears along a six-mile stretch of the river, with stopping points located on the grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, in 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park, and along the Central Canal at Butler University and continuing to White River State Park downtown.
Mirror markers and oversized red map pins identify important features of the watershed, including wetlands, floodplains, combined sewer outfalls and pollution. The Marian University EcoLab is included in this part of the exhibit.
In addition, on September 27, 2011, the university will host the talk "Super Cities Don't Wreck Their Watery World" featuring Michael P. Nelson, in conjunction with IndyTalks and the FLOW festival. For more information on speakers or to register,visit the web site.
FLOW: Can You See the River? was commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, with concurrent activities facilitated by EcoArts Connections and more than 20 leading Indianapolis arts, science, environment, and municipal organizations and agencies.
