Under Water

January 21-April 8, 2023

This exhibition intends to explore the history and symbolism beneath and within the water around us, through the work in a wide range of media by a diverse collection of artists. Where is our water? What is in it? How much are we consuming? How is climate change impacting water globally and how will it impact us? And how can artists create opportunities to reconnect us with the tremendous beauty and potential of this precious resource?

Our annual showcase of youth creativity features artwork by students of all ages in Palo Alto Unified School District as well as artwork created in the Art Center’s artist-in-the-schools program, Cultural Kaleidoscope.
