The ART of Water from Eric Tillinghast


2012 has been a record year for drought in the United States and issues surrounding water usage will continue long after this drought has ended. According to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs’ Galleries of Contemporary Art website, H20: Water, Culture & Politics is a new exhibit and lecture series that are part of a state-wide celebration of water: Colorado Water 2012.  The exhibit will feature an installation by ARTprojectA artist Eric Tillinghast.

He will create a monumental, site-specific water installation—a “rain machine”—in GOCA1420 (UCCS’ 2800 square foot gallery). Tillinghast will be in residence for three weeks, during which time he will share his process and work with UCCS students, faculty and the greater community. The work will inspire an interdisciplinary investigation of water, culminating in a lecture series featuring speakers on this vast and important subject from interdisciplinary perspectives.

According to Tillinghast, “I have been working with water as a sculptural material since 1994. This has resulted in an ongoing series of sculptures, installations, and projects in which it is the primary subject and medium. My primary interests are in our perceptions of water as a natural element and resource, and creating an experience that examines those perceptions.”
