Presented in partnership with Restore Hetch Hetchy

Part two of the Brower Center’s water-themed series focuses on past and present water debates in California, which has been called “the most hydrologically altered landmass on the planet.”  In November, the Center will take a look at California’s water history, exploring the successes and failures of three major water redistribution projects: Mono Lake, San Joaquin River, and the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct. Special guests will include Mono Lake Committee's Geoff McQuilkin;Natural Resources Defense Council's Monty Schmitt and Friant Water Authority's Steve Ottemoeller in discussion about the San Joaquin River; and Restore Hetch Hetchy's Spreck Rosekrans and the San Francisco Public Utility Commission's Michael Carlin in discussion about Hetch Hetchy Valley.


About Art/Act: Maya Lin 

Every fall, the Brower Center presents the Art/Act Award & Exhibition, created to honor established artists who have dedicated a significant part of their careers to using art’s unique transformative power in the service of activism. In 2014, the Center recognizes internationally acclaimed sculptor, architectural designer, and ardent environmentalist Maya Lin, known most widely for her Vietnam Veterans Memorial, but whose most recent work has focused on threatened ecosystems. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Lin was inspired to highlight the fragility of bodies of water around the world, creating abstract wall sculptures to represent entities like the San Francisco Bay and Tuolumne River, both of which will be featured at the Center.
