Whose Water? A Conversation About the Human Impact of California’s Water Policies

Mark Arax, Journalist and Author; Kathy Jefferson Bancroft, Water Protector & Tribal Historic Preservation Officer; Barron Bixler, High Meadows Environmental Institute

Wed, 9/28 · 4:30 pm6:00 pm EDT · 016 Robertson Hall and Livestream

Princeton School of Public and International Affairs; Bernstein Gallery

Join us for the opening of Barron Bixler: Watershed, Bernstein Gallery’s inaugural exhibition of our 2022­–23 season.

Taking Bixler’s photographic project about water in California as a springboard, this conversation will examine how water has indelibly shaped the Golden State’s landscape, politics, economy, and culture for more than a century. Designed to move more water than has ever been moved by any civilization in history, California’s massive water system has had both far-reaching and hyperlocal consequences. Join us to hear powerful perspectives on the communities, ecosystems, cultural resources, and sacred sites that are being threatened by a system at its breaking point.

Bernstein Gallery is located on the lower level of Robertson Hall. The conversation with Mark Arax, Kathy Jefferson Bancroft, and Barron Bixler, which will be moderated by Bernstein Gallery curator Kristin Poor, will be held in Robertson Hall Bowl 016, adjacent to the gallery. You can also register to attend virtually at this link.
