River to River - Artists Take On Water

This week is the last of the River to River Festival, a celebration of Lower Manhattan and a collaboration between cool partners working to foster conversations about the environment, art, and sustainability.

The neighborhood's flooding during Sandy was a shocking, poignant image from the storm and still pops into my head when I think of climate change or read about new plans for the city's water infrastructure (the image to the right is from the DailyNews' coverage after the storm, a throughly disturbing series of images). Fluid: Construct is a gathering of pieces created by four artists that addresses the city's relationship with water. It reminds me that sometimes its good to take a break from the world of architectural and design drawings to see planning work in a different light.

The festival goes through this weekend, but the exhibit will be open until August 2.
