TPR and SAMA present Focus on the Environment, July 30, 2009

From Texas Public Radio:
Texas Public Radio and the San Antonio Museum of Art are partnering for Contemporary Art Month to showcase the “Waterflow” exhibit, featuring pieces by artists who are inspired by water. The evening kicks off Texas Public Radio’s Focus on the Environment, an annual spotlight on sustainability issues in the community, July 30, 2009 from 6 to 8:30 p.m at The San Antonio Museum of Art, 200 W Jones Ave, 78215.

In celebration of the opening of the newly expanded Museum Reach of the Riverwalk this May, SAMA is pleased to present Waterflow, an exhibition of recent works by fifteen Texas artists who have been inspired by water.

The exhibition features work in several mediums and takes a variety of approaches, with themes centering on the essence of nature, the passage of time, nature as metaphor, and the preservation of the environment.

Guests of SAMA and TPR can enjoy the "Waterflow" exhibit for free and have an opportunity to meet some of the artists whose work is displayed. The San Antonio Water System, the San Antonio River Authority, The Edwards Aquifer Authority and the Texas Water Development Board will be on hand to educate visitors on conservation of San Antonio's most precious resource.

Activities include a blind taste test to see if you can determine which water comes from a bottle and which comes from tap water. Visitors can also listen to Handel's "Water Music" and other classical selections, courtesy of Brass FX, or enjoy the banks of the San Antonio River at the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk.

The evening will also include food from Water Street Oyster Bar. Join us on Thursday, July 30 at from 6 to 8:30 p.m. for a family-filled evening of art and environmental awareness. If you are not a member of Texas Public Radio, you can join at the event and receive our TPR logo water bottle. Visitors who join SAMA that evening will receive a full-color booklet about the "Waterflow" exhibit.

This event is free and open to the public, however, reservations are required. Waterworks is made possible by the San Antonio River Authority and the Edwards Aquifer Authority.
