Water Connects Us All

An installation at the Hennepin County Government Center of paintings and puppets arranged in vignettes along the long corridor of the exhibit case.

Beautiful, somewhat humorous, and also educational recognition of what it is that connects us all to draw the viewer into deeper considerations of their own relationship to water and our own best humanity in protecting our vital water.

Accompanied by narratives written in various languages.
