Artitechture: Water Tower Art Exhibit
There is a great show which opened last Friday, of 50 illustrated water towers at Kikkerland in NYC. If you love models, little houses, run down shacks and weird little structures as much as we do, this is a must see! Composed of small models of water tanks, they are each adorned in their own way by individual artists. The show is curated by artist Chris Buzelli (above) and SooJin Buzelli for Boundless Brooklyn, who donated and sells the model kits.
Get ‘em while you can, the towers are only on display and for sale through this Wednesday, April 15th!

More Tank Talk
In 2013, many of the real water towers, neglected and forgotten along the NYC sky line, were transformed by artists into wonderful visions. This was called - The Water Tank Project and you may remember seeing images of them pop up on social media. We certainly do!
It was/is part art exhibition, part awareness campaign. For the duration of the project, art above will be complemented by action on the ground through educational programs, public tours, social media activities and a symposium dedicated to inspiring fresh views on global water issues.
