Bearing Witness to Wild Waters – Where is Your Water From?

January 20, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join MOSH for a special presentation by Artist-In-Residence Sarah Crooks Flaire as she explores the landscape of natural springs as a metaphor for the heart of our St. Johns River. Rooted in her personal mythology of Red Pearl River, where she redirects her energy daily from consumptive to creative partnership, Bearing Witness explores the tension between domestication and wild that the St. Johns River struggles with daily.

The journey will begin at 6:30 P.M. in the Museum lobby and will continue into the Bearing Witness exhibit on the 2nd floor.
