Commonwealth: Water For All - Ongoing; All day - In New York City, it’s easy to take water for granted. Water makes up more than 60% of our bodies, and while it is essential to life, increasingly we’ve come to think of it as a commodity to be bought and sold thoughtlessly. Highlighting the urgency of this issue, two recently acquired portfolios of prints developed by the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, We Are the Storm (2015) and Wellspring (2016), are presented with a selection of materials developed for the movement against the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. Commonwealth: Water For All is the third in a series of exhibitions that features contemporary expressions about water, its utility, and its preservation and consumption in dialogue with the Museum’s long-term display of the Relief Map of New York City’s Water System, a sprawling WPA project commissioned for the 1939-40 World’s Fair. The model traces the system of aqueducts and tunnels that support the flow of water from the mountains of upstate New York to New York City. | Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows Corona Park
