New York-based artist to speak Oct. 30 on public art’s impact on rivers

The Swope Art Museum and Art Spaces Inc. will present a talk by New York-based artist Betsy Damon at noon on Wednesday at the Swope. The artist will teach attendees about the public art she has created internationally to positively impact the health of rivers. Guests are welcome to bring lunch to eat during the free presentation.

Damon is an internationally recognized artist whose work with water, site-specific sculptures and performance has received widespread acclaim and publication.

Since 1985, she has focused her work on water and ecological issues. She created the “Living Water Garden” in Sichuan, China, a six-acre urban park that has become an icon of urban water conscientiousness.

Her current projects include “ReSources: Saving Living Systems,” which documents living Tibetan water culture in the Eastern Himalayas, and “Living Waters of Larimer,” a project for community action and sustainable water design in Pittsburgh.

Damon is the founder of the nonprofit Keepers of the Waters, through which she promotes environmental and health education, ecological planning, community projects and advocacy worldwide.

This event is presented as part of Turn to the River, a project through which Art Spaces is studying the ways in which public art and design may play a role in reconnecting Terre Haute’s downtown with the Wabash River. Visit www.wabashvalleyartspaces.com or call 812-235-2801 for more information.

The Swope Art Museum is at 25 S. Seventh St. For more information, visit www.swope.org or call 812-238-1676.
