Life Unseen

LIFEWTR believes creativity should flow like water, one single drop can ripple through culture and inspire a million others to create. Today, three out of four American’s don’t see themselves represented in the arts. Too many artists go unseen and it’s time for change. That’s why LIFEWTR is opening the floodgates of creativity for everyone with LIFE UNSEEN.

In partnership with Issa Rae, we’ve found the 20 most incredible yet unseen creators in America and commissioned one piece of work about a story they believe needs to be told. Join our movement to make unseen artists seen.

Series 10: Black Art Rising

Black creative voices in the arts are critically underrepresented. Throughout history, Black creators have shown us and continue to convey the profound power of their art, often using it as a vehicle to showcase the vital perspectives on systemic racism and the black experience.

LIFEWTR “Black Art Rising” series will bring that very celebration of the Black experience and creative expression to the forefront. This series will spotlight Black artists from diverse backgrounds and their creations that are inspired by urban impressions, lived experiences, and Black identity.

This is an extension of the LIFEWTR Black Art Rising time capsule, a digital immortalization of the arts of seven Black creatives and their art in hopes to showcase the powerful impact that Black protest art has on the movement to tackle systemic racism and injustice against the Black community.

Series 9: The Art of Recycling

Preserving our environment and resources is more important than ever, yet awareness doesn’t always translate into action. Art has the power to engage the public and inspire action at scale.

LIFEWTR ‘The Art of Recycling’ Series, will bring recycling efforts into the public knowledge, dialogue, and action. This series will celebrate artists whose practices focus on upcycling, ecologic materials, and green processes, and who in turn inspire their audiences to reimagine how we live and interact with our environment.

This will mark LIFEWTR’s commitment to recycling by becoming the 1st US premium water to be 100% recyclable and be made out of 100% rPET by the end of 2020.
