Every year 5 million people die from preventable,
water-related diseases because they do not have access to clean water.

By 2025, it is predicted that the global demand for clean water will exceed supply by 56%. These numbers present a staggering death toll and a looming crisis that goes largely unnoticed, especially where safe water is plentiful. Through monumental, public-participation art projects, Art for Water draws attention to global water crises. Its projects raise awareness and promote dialogue focused on the shrinking availability of clean water—due to climate change, access, and commercial exploitation.
