Water is Louisiana’s most abundant resource. Water saturates the air with humidity; it permeates the coastline as the oceans rise. It falls from the sky in torrential rainstorms that flood the cities. It cuts through the land at the terminal of the Mississippi River, a vital and historical port of commerce. Water, more than anything, has most shaped our culture and history.
Through the work of 17 New Orleans-based artists and writers, Water Site explores the integral and yet often unmentioned role that water plays in the everyday lives of Louisianans in a portfolio of printed artworks and creative writing.
