New York’s thirst for art

For the first time in history, New York’s iconic water tanks will be used as canvases for public art. Twelve feet high, thirteen feet in diameter and mostly made of redwood, the water tanks can be seen from almost every corner of the city.

Artists participating in the project will donate original works of art, which will be printed on vinyl material and installed on the tanks. Organisers hope the tanks will spark a global dialogue about the future of one of our most precious and endangered resources: water.
