Women and Water Rights, Ripples of Regeneration is a regional and international art exhibition scheduled to be shown from February 23 to March 25, 2010, in the Nash Gallery on the Twin City campus of the University of Minnesota. By showcasing invited international artists from many parts of the world, a global mail art/postcard show, as well as a juried selection (women or women/men collaboration) from the State of Minnesota, the exhibit will examine the centuries-old intimate connectedness between women and water in its daily use, in cultural traditions and in the spiritual realm. At the same time, through accompanying programs featuring lectures, panel discussions, videos and interactive activities the exhibit intends to draw public attention to the current and future global water crises as seen from a gender perspective.
