The State We're In: Water is an interdisciplinary project that includes an arts-based research residency and multiple exhibitions. The exhibition features five installation works by lead artist Marguerite Perret in collaboration with artist Robin Lasser, exhibition designer Bruce Scherting, and scientists in water, environmental science, unmanned Systems Research, plant biology, and more. Through sensory-rich video, sculptured forms, and visually complex constructions, the exhibition explores wastewater recycling; watershed habitats; the imprint of water movement on the land. Symptomatic of global issues, the local situations presented will engage University, local, and regional communities of all ages in the inviting, immersive experiences the installations offer. The goal of the overall project is to activate visitors' sense of place and social involvement and to present art as a powerful learning platform for science.
The museum is open Thursday - Saturday 11 AM - 4 PM and open by appointment Monday - Wednesday. Call 405-744-2780 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment.
