We here at Waterwell have been recently inspired by the work of Works on Water, a New York art organization that funds residencies and exhibits artists whose work bridges personal expression, water education, and commentary on public water policy.

We are working to build a similar collaborative movement in Chicago, please reach out if you would like to learn more and join our arts and water initiatives in the Windy City!

Works on Water is an organization and triennial exhibition dedicated to artworks, performances, conversations, workshops and site-specific experiences that explore diverse artistic investigation of water in the urban environment. We seek to strengthen and nourish the community of artists working on and with bodies of water and to provide a platform to increase awareness of artists and organizations working on and with the waterways.
