Description

Reception: Thursday, September 15 from 5 to 7 p.m.

"High Water Mark" is the latest artwork by Los Angeles-based artist Kevin Cooley. This immersive installation, created with the support of the university, explores the confluence of demands on the most precious resource — water — in the legendary Western landscapes of lakes Powell and Havasu. Both reservoirs tame the Colorado River to create a reliable water supply for millions of people throughout the Southwest while simultaneously offering "unparalleled opportunities for water-based recreation," according to the National Park Service. "High Water Mark" is part of Cooley's ongoing exploration of manufactured landscapes, our evolving relationship with nature, and the connections to hidden architecture of everyday life.
