Liquid Assets: New York’s Watersheds & Waterways

Thursday, February 22, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

What can New York City do to protect its drinking water supply and its recreational waters in the coming decades? How is that supply affected by climate change, and what must we do to adapt? Join us for a deep dive into NYC’s complex water systems, which powerfully illustrate our city’s dependency on – and symbiotic relationship to – its larger regional environment and economy.

Al Appleton, former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection
Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance
Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper
Stacy Levy, environmental artist

Following the panel, the Valerie Green/Dance Entropy company will perform an excerpt from “Impermanent Landscape,” an immersive dance performance that captures the transient nature of living in an ever-changing urban environment. Impermanent Landscape is performed “in the round” in non-traditional locations, responding each time to the specific nature of the space.

$25 for adults | $20 for seniors, students, and educators (with ID) | $15 for Museum Members. Includes Museum admission.
