The impetus for this exhibition, in collaboration with the University of Texas Permian Basin’s Nancy Fyfe Cardozier Gallery and the Ellen Noël Art Museum, came from community members focusing on water issues in the Permian Basin. Together they have put a national call out to artists to submit their work regarding the topic of Water. Selected work will be displayed at both the Cardozier Gallery and at the Ellen Noel Art Museum’s Nelda Lee Gallery during the winter of 2022. UTPB will also be hosting the exhibition Water/Ways on loan from the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street Program.
