Just Add Water On View at Natural History Museum, Los Angeles, Through August 3

 

November 5, 2013 – August 3, 2014Just Add Water

One hundred years ago, on November 5, 1913, cattle ranchers and citrus orchard barons, city boosters and citizens gathered on the banks of the cascades feeding the San Fernando Reservoir to witness the first water from the Owens River surge into a thirsty city.

The crowds weren’t just cheering for water. A new apex of culture — the Museum of History, Science, and Art (the original name of NHM) — opened the following day.

Now, NHM is revisiting these two natural and cultural moments. On November 5, the aqueduct-themed special exhibition, Just Add Water: Artworks Inspired by the L.A. Aqueduct by Rob Reynolds opens. Los Angeles-based contemporary artist Reynolds has created 10 original, large-scale watercolors that interpret the epic significance of the Aqueduct, through the lenses of history, geography, and time.  In each, Reynolds references key sites and historical moments aligned with the Aqueduct’s 233-mile route and 100-year history.  This special exhibition, guest curated by art historian Dr. Charlotte Eyerman, invites visitors to rediscover Southern California’s parched past through the imaginative lens of Reynolds’ vision.
