EII Project and Other Events:

What River Are Youth Made Of? Tuolumne Inside Out Art Exhibit


Curated by Earth Island Institute project director Elizabeth Dougherty of Wholly H2O. Show Runs: Sept 4 to October 3

This show brings you 20+ artists’ interpretations of our Tuolumne River, as well as the 411 on the river itself. The artists weave a story about the Tuolumne on the molecular, infrastructure and end use levels through their 2D, 3D, digital, and mixed media artwork.

While the Tuolumne River flows out of the tall peaks of the Sierra Nevada straight to the faucets of three million water users in the San Francisco Bay Area, many don’t know its name and relation to them. The Tuolumne River provides both water and electricity to Turlock, Modesto, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

What else lies hidden from our consciousness about this stunning river as it flows below Bay Area urban neighborhoods, enters our bodies, passes on into the landscape or sewers? What ripples does this river make below us, around us and inside of us? How does this river move through the Bay Area? How are we using it? And what does this life force need from us, to be purely available to us?

When: Thursday September 11, 2014 – 6:30 pm

Where: Capital One 360 Cafe—101 Post Street, San Francisco California
