The Great Lakes….and not a drop to drink

The Great Lakes represent 20% of all the world’s fresh ground water and as Michiganders it has been an asset that we all take pride in.  There are so many looming crises that are not being addressed and the artists at LSGallery felt it was a topic that a lot of artists might have some opinions about.
Some examples: The Line 5 Oil pipeline, Flint water crisis (and other cities with a lot of lead in water), the Asian Carp invasion, Nestle’s siphoning off millions of gallons of water for $200 a year and selling for huge profits,  the droughts that are occurring all over the west making everyone eye the Great Lakes as a possible savior, the federal government not funding the EPA, run off pollution from farms causing Algae bloom and pollution from factories, not to mention the proposed Canadian nuclear waste underground disposal close to Lake Huron and on and on.   We are the Great Lakes stewards!!!!
We are also highlighting the beauty of our  lakes to remind us that we must preserve and protect these wonderful resources.
Rather than a jury, we are asking the public to vote for the “Best of Show” awardee, so come in and see the exhibit and VOTE!!!  Winner will  announced at the Mid-Month reception.
