Raising Clean Water Awareness
Public Art Installation in Fairport Harbor Memorial Park
May 19 to May 30
Keeping Lake Erie clean for future generations – that’s the goal of AQUA, a creative marketing campaign developed by students from 10 local high schools through the Excel TECC Marketing/Junior Achievement program at Beachwood High School.
The campaign consists of an installation of massive water drops designed by South African artist Neill Wright. The inflatable structures feature bold, tropical prints that capture in visual form the importance of clean water for healthy ecosystems. The installation will pop up across Greater Cleveland to educate communities about water conservation and “activate hundreds of Northeast Ohio residents to clean up area beaches.”
The installation will appear in Fairport Harbor Memorial Park from May 19 through May 30 and will feature action steps that individuals can take to conserve water. Visitors can scan a QR code displayed in the exhibit to make donations to Eriesponsible, a nonprofit that organizes Lake Erie beach cleanups.
