Downstream/Upstream: A Journey Through the Urban Water Cycle


Date: 05/12/2012 - 08/08/2012

Time: All Day Event

Location: Architecture Library Rapson Hall

Cost: Free


Downstream/Upstream: A Journey Through the Urban Water Cycle documents a two-week journey that 39 kids, ages 4-6, took to explore the infrastructure of water. On exhibit are the photographs, artists' books, maps, and diagrams that illustrate their exploration of the urban water cycle starting from a classroom sink to the Mississippi River — upstream and downstream. Jonee Kulman Brigham led a structured and creative collaborative project that allowed children to explore cultural narratives and issues of sustainability related to the flow of water.

Jonee Kulman Brigham is an architect and researcher at the Center for Sustainable Building Research in the College of Design, and an artist at Full Spring Studio.
