Moms Clean Air Force participated in sari-decorating workshops this winter with artist and climate activist Monica Jahan Bose and multimedia artist and video journalist Robin Bell. Monica and Robin are presenting the resulting temporary public art project, WARMING WATERS, July 23-25. The installation will drape the C&O Canal wall in Georgetown behind Blue Bottle Coffee with massive, colorful cotton fabric saris from Bangladesh covered with printmaking and writing about climate change by residents of Washington and Katakhali Village, Bangladesh, along with video projections on the saris in the evening.

The installation will be open for viewing from sunrise until 10 pm. Projections will be in the evenings from 9pm – 10pm, weather permitting. Click here for free tickets to the evening projections, which are limited due to social distancing. Visitors must wear masks, and social-distancing circles will be marked on the ground for households to sit together, away from others. Participation in person is at your own risk. A dedication and projections will also be livestreamed.
