Last year, Borderless Arts initiated a program that we felt would be a one time project. However, the program was such a success that many of our participants named it the project of the year. So….we are back with Water Warriors.
Water Warriors will take place on Saturday, April 4 in Memorial Park from 9am-1pm. There will be 5 teams led by professional artists: Carlos Calderon, Dee Kimbress, Monica Leister, Ren Mahue and Amy Smart. Each team will be made up of Borderless Arts participants, students, and environmental agencies. The teams will be building a piece of art that represents a water conservation message out of plastics. The art must also be able to float.
Prizes are awarded for best conservation message, most creative and the winner of the race of the art on the river. Smaller games and prizes also happen throughout the day.
If you would like to be part of the Water Warriors project, let us know. We plan to have our teams set and ready to wage war on trash in our water by early February.
This program is supported by the Memorial Foundation and Gallatin Lowes Home Improvement.
