Outreach 

  • The Water Museum is an invaluable resource for all schools in Los Angeles County. We will host school field trips catering to all age groups. The interactive permanent exhibits will be a place for children and teens to learn and explore with the magical world of water. 

  • We will host various workshops, for young and old alike, including but not limited to teaching how to harvest rainwater and reuse grey water, as well as how to test your water for pollutants. 

  • The Water Museum will also provide internships and classes for the nearby LA Southwest College that is right across the street.

  • Artist and Scientist residencies will have access to the Liquid Library, the Water Gallery, and the Hydro Lab. Artists and Scientists are encouraged to collaborate with each other. 

 

Programming and Events

Yearly 

  • Water Conference - Experts from around the world will be invited to share their knowledge about water with our communities. 

  • Film Festival - Artists and filmmakers will be encouraged to submit water related films in subjects ranging from sanitation to quantum biology to show at the annual Film Festival 

  • World Water Day Celebration (March 22) - every year we will host a celebration of World Water Day with activities, lectures, and dance. 

 

Bimonthly

  •  There will be rotating exhibits in the gallery, some springing from the artist residencies.  

 

Weekly 

  • Our goal is to be a community center, so we will have a variety of weekly events designed to bring the community together, creating the P.O.N.D. - People Opening New Discussions.  Events like these include lectures, workshops, and community open mics. 

 

The Water Museum is brought to you by:

 

Channel Water

    Knowledge, like water, is useless when there is no access to it.  So in order to counteract this, we created Channel Water - a Youtube Channel that publishes free information and resources to learn about water. Channel Water is a family friendly channel that has been growing consistently since its birth in November 2016. It has poems, lectures, and animations that provide more information about water. Topics range from consciousness to the architecture of nature. 

     The channel will be used to share the information available in The Water Museum to people around the world. We will stream all live events in the museum for free world wide, as well as continuing to produce educational videos. All of our content will also be available in podcast audio form for places that have limited internet access.  

 

Faces of Water 

    Faces of Water is a photography series created by Moses Hacmon, founder of the Water Museum, using a patented method to capture the movement of water.  It allows The Water Museum to bring a unique point of view about water and its behavior. 

    Faces of Water images have been featured world wide in articles by WIRED Magazine and Die Zeit, a National German Newspaper.  It has had numerous exhibits in galleries, museums and site specific locations such as Joshua Tree and de Young Museum in San Francisco. 

    The Water Museum will be the first and only permanent exhibit with Faces of Water images. It gives us a unique advantage as a water centered museum to have access to groundbreaking imagery of liquid dynamics that has never been seen before in the scientific world. These images are an invaluable tool in explaining how water moves and creates forms in nature as well as hints into our identity of water.
