New Cleveland Museum of Art Show Looks at Global Threats to Water

Sat 6/8

The Cleveland Museum of Art opens one of its contributions to the celebration of he 50th anniversary of the final Cuyahoga River fire, which helped launch the modern environmental movement. Water, featuring the work of Canadian artists Edward Burtynsky, focuses on the threats to clean water that exist today despite the 1972 passage of the Clean Water Act, inspired in part by the Cuyahoga fire. He looks at how water impacts the lives of people around the world through 13 large color photographs taken in locations such as the Gulf of Mexico, the Texas Panhandle and the shore of the Ganges River in India.

The show will be on view through Sun 9/22.
