Interpreting the Green Cities, Clean Waters Vision

The Philadelphia Water Department’s (PWD) “Green Cities, Clean Waters” program seeks to implement a comprehensive watershed management approach that identifies multiple solutions (land, water, and infrastructure-based) to improve and preserve the City’s water environment, to create a green
legacy for future generations and to incorporate a balance between ecology, economics and equity. Please join us at the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center, as artist, Bill Kelly, displays an artistic interpretation of Philadelphia’s “Green Cities, Clean Waters” program. Our daily interaction with water provides a prime example of humans’ ecological relationship with the planet – it is one of the most common yet vital interactions we have with the natural world everyday. Art, with its appeal to the senses, imagination, and intellect, provides a unique approach to explore this relationship between society and water. The jars featured in this exhibit, fi lled with water and teeming with life and imagery, are a reminder of how intertwined we are both locally and globally with the fi nite amount of water that exists on this planet.  – Bill Kelly
