Environmental art pioneer Betsy Damon

Damon is the founder of Keepers of the Water, a nonprofit organization dedicated to combining art, science and community involvement to restore, preserve and remediate water resources.

Her first project, “The Living Water Garden” (1998) in Chengdu, China, won several international design awards and was undertaken to clean the water in the Fu and Nan rivers.

Using sculptural flow forms that move oscillating waters through a series of pools, the installation cleans water and provides a place for children to play before the purified water is returned to the rivers. link to full article
