Invitation to HighWaterLine Project Wednesday Sep 25th
We would like you to join us for a dynamic discussion (and food and drink!) on art as a catalyst for change with artist Eve Mosher & catalyst Heidi Quante who utilize public spaces to shift the public discourse.
Eve first created her public intervention art piece, HighWaterLine, in 2007 along 70 miles of NYC coastline to help New Yorkers visualize how their beloved city will be impacted by climate change. Prophetically, the very area Eve demarcated in 2007 was flooded in 2012 by Superstorm Sandy. The New Yorker and ABC Nightline ran stories highlighting how Eve’s public art raised awareness long before Superstorm Sandy hit. (Here is a video of the first HWL)
Eve is now collaborating with long time environmental coordinator Heidi Quante to invite the world to use HighWaterLine as an artistic tool to raise awareness and catalyze action in communities worldwide. (Over half of the world's people live in cities vulnerable to climate change fueled extreme flooding and sea level rise).
Heidi will also be on hand to share HighWaterLine | Miami, the current HighWaterLine collaboration with the diverse communities of Miami, the most climate vulnerable city in the U.S.
Best, Sara and Marc
Wednesday, September 25th, 6:30 PM, Meet at the Apartment 101 Crosby Street RSVP To firstname.lastname@example.org
