In New York, A Large-Scale Project To Transform Water Tanks Into Works Of Art



For three months in the spring of 2013, water tanks around New York City will be transformed into works of public art, thanks to a campaign to teach residents to be more responsible with water.

Run by non-profit organisation Word Above the Street, the campaign titled ‘The Water Tank Project’ will see a mixture of celebrities like Jay Z and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, artists such as Ed Ruscha as well as students adorning some 300 water tanks with their original artworks on water.

The organizers behind this large-scale project include Sotheby’s chairwoman Lisa Dennison MoMA PS1’s senior curatorial advisor Neville Wakefield.

They are not only hoping to restore appreciation for NYC’s high quality drinking water but to increase awareness for water conservation and also reduce the use of plastic for bottled water.
