CFA: Creative B: Xavier Cortada's "Moving Water" Ritualistic Art Installation and Dedication
July 30, 2014
Members of the community are invited to gather for the installation and dedication of Moving Water, a new 32-foot-long ceramic tile mural on UF's campus created by Miami artist Xavier Cortada that marks the Panama Canal Centennial by connecting it with the lives of present-day Floridians. The mural is the culmination of a project Cortada conducted with University of Florida engineering and art student to bring awareness of our impact on the environment by examining how much Florida has been transformed in the last 100 years. Attendees are invited to BYOW (bring your own water) collected locally and participate in a procession throughout campus that will end with the dedication of the mural.

July 30, 2 p.m., procession begins at Library West on UF's campus and ends at the Computer Science & Engineering Building.
