Accumulation, a suspended installation of slip cast ceramics, is a reflection on the negative impact that humans have had on our environment. This exhibition and slate of programming integrates the history of water use and misuse in Colorado with an artistic interpretation inspired by these themes.

Loveland’s water supply is maintained at a high quality standard despite environmental conditions that can arise at a blink of an eye. Explore the different types of algae present in nature that affect our community’s drinking water. Discover how monitoring ensures the water supply is both safe and tasty.

Exhibit includes images from Loveland Water and Power.

“This cloud hangs heavily, like the floating islands of plastic waste that loom over the animals living beneath them. Viewed from below the surface, the weight of our responsibility toward our environment becomes a heavy burden, an anxiety that becomes as inescapable as the microscopic particles that are beginning to saturate the water they contaminate.”
