WATER is essential to life, at times calming, at other times powerful and difficult to control; seemingly abundant, but increasingly scarce. Exploring and understanding WATER in a multitude of forms – as a conduit for transportation and civilization, as an environmental resource, and as one of nature’s most versatile tools – is the theme of KANEKO’s Spring 2016.
WATER will explore issues impacting water quality and sustainability both within the midwestern region and globally. These concepts will be highlighted through the combination of scientific data and fine art, while encouraging visitors to consider their own relationship with water – how water impacts our community, our health, and our perspectives.
WATER is made possible by the generous support of our Presenting Sponsor – Valmont Industries, Inc. Additional support comes from the Water for Food Institute, Nebraska Watershed Network, and Papio-Missouri River NRD.
