An Art Collaboration
Water Rising is a unique collaboration between Leila Philip and sculptor, Garth Evans. It combines Evan's watercolors and Philip's poems, bound together in a critically acclaimed art book, and has evolved and grown as a project to include music, spoken word, video installation, and many events across the country and around the world.
The project has an environmental mission, and 100% of net proceeds are being donated to generate support for environmental stewardship through groups like 1000 Friends of Oregon, CT Audubon, and Scenic Hudson.
"Evans and Philip teach us how to see a place anew, as if ‘a secret were breaking open.’ Once we know that secret nothing will ever be the same again."
-Christopher Merrill, The Trees of the Doves
