IDE and EventGallery
The ART of DIRT
AUG.6 – SEPT.25 2010
A two-part exhibition of water technologies and artwork from developing countries where Denver-based IDE works to cultivate prosperity
Part I (August 6 - 31) of the exhibition features photographs of the people IDE works with every day, along with displays of the innovative water technologies IDE has developed as part of its Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation-funded "Rural Prosperity Initiative" - extremely affordable water pumps, drip irrigation and water storage systems. Special events scheduled throughout the run of the exhibition offer opportunities to meet IDE staff from around the world and learn about their work.
Part II (September 1 - 25) features artwork from eight countries brought to Denver especially for this show, providing a unique window on rural life in the developing world. The show presents a range of images of rural markets and farming, with works from established and emerging artists from Central America, Asia and Africa, in a variety of styles from semi-abstract to representative. The artwork will be offered for sale through an online auction with proceeds benefiting IDE.
Low-cost water technologies, access to better seeds and growing techniques, and better connections to markets are the foundation of the IDE approach to cultivating prosperity in Africa, Asia and Latin America. >Read the Art of Dirt Part II Press Release (PDF)
