The City of San Diego Water Department is making a splash with the San Diego Watercolor Society. The recently announced winning posters from the 2009 Children’s Water Conservation Poster Contest will be on exhibit alongside original watercolor paintings reflecting the
“Falling Water” theme at the Watercolor Society’s Gallery in NTC Promenade at Point Loma’s Liberty Station, 2825 Dewey Road, Suite 105, San Diego, CA 92106.
To kick off the month-long exhibit, a special reception will be held on Friday, June 5, 2009 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the San Diego Watercolor Society Gallery. The event will honor the 18 winners out of the thousands of students who submitted posters to the 2009 contest. Admission is free and
refreshments will be served. The public and the media are invited to attend to help celebrate the outstanding achievements of these children.
“We invite the public to enjoy a night of celebrating art and water conservation,” said Julie Anderson, President of the San Diego Watercolor Society. “It’s wonderful to have the children’s posters intermingled with our members’ paintings so that we can learn and teach each other about art and water conservation.”
During the reception, student artists and member artists will be recognized during an awards ceremony.
Awards and prizes will be given out by the Watercolor Society and the City of San Diego Water Department.
“As San Diegans, we have no time to waste when it comes to water conservation,” said Luis Generoso, Water Resources Manager for the City of San Diego Water Department. “We are very thankful to have each child and member inspire the community to use water wisely in such a creative way.”
“Falling Water” will be on display at the Watercolor Society’s Showcase Gallery until June 30, 2009.
