We are pleased to announce that “Water for Life” International Art Exhibition, Fifth Edition, to be held at the prestigious Museo de la Zona Arqueológica de Palenque “Alberto Ruz Lhuillier”, Palenque, State of Chiapas, Mexico.

 

We are pleased to share that our main partners include the Center of UNESCO in Florence (Italy), the National Institute of Anthropology and History  (INAH), and the Museo de la Zona Arqueológica de Palenque “Alberto Ruz Lhuillier”, the City of Palenque, the Gobierno Municipal de Palenque, and the State of Chiapas. Our main collaborator, the Comité de Pueblos Mágicos de Palenque.

The Exhibition will take place from March 23rd – April 2nd, 2023,  supporting the International Water Day on March 22nd, 2023.

Water for Life Exhibition will showcase the work of multiple international artists that highlights a series of artworks inspired by the theme of water. The First Edition started In Niagara Falls, under the patronage of the Mayor of Niagara Falls as 20% of the fresh water from the world passes through the City. Through the theme of water, our objective is to sensitize audiences to an important social and cultural issue: “More than a billion individuals – one in seven people on the planet – now lack access to safe drinking water.

Today due to climate change, higher temperatures and changes in extreme weather conditions are projected to affect availability and distribution of rainfall, snowmelt, river flows, groundwater, and further deteriorate water quality. More floods and severe droughts are predicted. Changes in water availability will also impact health and food security.

In this 5th Edition, it is essential for us to create awareness and increase respect of the environment, while protecting water sources in this important touristic area. Hopefully, “Water for Life” will help to sensitize people to maintain safe drinking water for the future, particularly due to Global Climate Changes affecting water sources.

 

It is important to mention that all distinguished participating artists in the “Water for Life” International Art Exhibitions, are selected based on their recognition by international art critics.
