LIFEWTR believes art is as essential to life as water. So we’re bringing awareness to the importance of arts education by completing 60 public art projects in communities nationwide. Follow our progress on the map!
The Miami Project was the very first LIFEWTR public art project this year. Artwork used to cover the walls of this local elementary school—that is, before necessary construction and repairs meant they were painted over. Through this project, local artists Alex Mijares, Jessy Nite, Courtney and Courtney Einhorn, along with LIFEWTR Series Artist Adrienne Gaither, brought new artwork and vibrancy back to these school walls—much to the happy surprise of the students.
This installation along Highway 71, spanning between Austin and Houston, TX, surprised local drivers with a transformation of barns. The barns, created by local artists Jason Earthly, Ana Marietta, Joerael Numina, and Zuzu Perkal, provide unique takes on current infrastructure: finding inspiration in everything from butterflies, to sea life, to true Texas grit.
LIFEWTR continued the journey in Chicago with four mural projects at a local Chicago high school. Artists Kane One, Merlot, Ascend One, and CZR PZR created inspirational walls outside the school and at a local community center to celebrate all that is unique to the city of Chicago.
LIFEWTR took its project to a local community center outside of Boston, where local artists Destiny Palmer, Cedric Douglas, Sophy Tuttle, and Chris Piascik brought birds, whales, abstract art, and even a bulldog or two to the Community Center—to the delight of Center members and the surrounding community.
