By showcasing invited international artists from many parts of the world, a global mail art/postcard show, as well as a juried selection (women or women/men collaboration) from the State of Minnesota, the exhibit will examine the centuries-old intimate connectedness between women and water in its daily use, in cultural traditions and in the spiritual realm.
