Dear Artists and Water Workers:
In the case that you know international artists working in water reuse, here’s a magazine article submission call out.  I am the guest editor for this issue on Art, women, social justice and water reuse, and identifying international artists doing very striking artistic work in water reuse is my task.  Have you suggestions?
