Name of Show "H2O12" Sponsored by One World, One Water— Celebrating Colorado Water 2012 through the arts.
Now seeking submissions for artwork that expresses your emotions or views relating to water— it’s value, beauty, use, abuse, etc. Pieces will be judged only on artistic merit and will not be censored according to political views.
This juried exhibition will be held in conjunction with the “Year of Water in Colorado”, which celebrates many efforts including the 75th anniversary of the legislation that created many of the water organizations that manage Colorado’s water resources. It will also serve to commemorate the creation of the new “One World, One Water” Water Education Program at Metropolitan State College and the installation of the large outdoor sculpture by the same name. Throughout the year 2012, “Colorado Water 2012” will be connecting Coloradans to their water through resources, events, and activities created by seven “Colorado Water 2012” Committees and by a coalition of over 200 volunteers statewide. For information visit www.water2012.org.
