Storytelling with Saris Earth Day Presentation

April 22, 2021
12:00 pm
- 1:00 pm

Join artists and climate activists Monica Jahan Bose and Robin Bell for the premiere of the film Warming Waters and a discussion about their continued collaboration and the new public art project Concrete Dreams. This virtual event will take place at April 22 at 12PM ET and is cosponsored by Moms Clean Air Force DC.

Warming Waters and Concrete Dreams are public art projects in Washington, DC, and Katakhali Village, Bangladesh. They are led by Monica Jahan Bose in collaboration with Robin Bell and members of the public. Warming Waters took place in July 2020. Saris were draped on the C&O Canal wall in Georgetown. Concrete Dreams will drape cotton saris and project images and poetry on the facade of the DC Arts Center at 2438 18th Street NW for three days in May 2021 (planned for May 20-23, depending on weather). This project is supported by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ Public Art Building Communities Grant Program.
