We are pleased to announce that “Water for Life” International Art Exhibition, Fourth Edition, to be held at the prestigious Museum Maya, in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

We are pleased to share that our main partners include the Center of UNESCO in Florence (Italy), the National Institute of Anthropology (INAH) and the Universidad del Caribe.

The Exhibition will take place from March 24th -April 3rd, 2022 supporting the International Water Day on March 22nd, 2022.

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 4th Edition there are 2 important natural sources that needs protection; the Mangroves that protect the coast erosion from rising water, and the Cenotes, important source of fresh water.

   

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.
