Exploring Humanity's Relationship with Water

Edward Burtynsky: Water, a selection of large-scale photographs that draw attention to the growing needs of an expanding and thirsty civilization that is reshaping Earth, will be on display at The Trout Gallery at Dickinson College, Weiss Center for the Arts, through Oct. 19. The gallery will host a reception on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 6-7 p.m. in conjunction with the premier of Current, a multidisciplinary production by pianist and Professor of Music Jennifer Blyth and artist and Associate Professor of Art Todd Arsenault. The exhibition, reception and performance are free and open to the public.

Burtynsky is one of the world’s most accomplished contemporary photographers. “Over the… years, I have learned a few things about water,” Burtynsky said in 2013. “When disrupted from its natural course there are always winners and losers.”

This exhibition appears at The Trout Gallery courtesy of the New Orleans Museum of Art.

The Trout Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
