Water Day 2015

cr Marfa 2

To celebrate Water Day 2015, International Woman’s Foundation is supported the installation of a Public Art Urban Landscape Installation.
The art installation consists in a crosswalk designed by artists Mary Godigna Collet and Luis R Gutierrez.
The first of the 4 crosswalks was installed at the corner of El Paso St. and Austin St., In front of the Crowley Theater on Water Day. This was possible thanks to the donation of Hal and Camila Scott from Austin.
Currently, International Woman’s Foundation is accepting donations for the other 3 crosswalks to be installed as soon as Austin St. is repaved.
We are very excited by the way this project is working since is truly participative and utilitarian art.
Is really something that not only people can use but also involves pedestrian’s awareness and safety.
