The installations also will take place at libraries in Stamford, Willimantic and New London, the release said.
The Wave "is an interactive exhibit envisioned by two Connecticut artists to raise awareness of the vital role water plays in our lives," the release said.
“There’s a limited amount of water on this planet,” Hoffman Fishman said, also in the release. “More and more of it is being polluted, and a lot of areas in the world are now having water shortages, and we have to pay attention to that.”
"At each site, the artists work with public participants to build community and celebrate water. At New Haven Free Public Library, wave-shaped pieces cut by individuals will be hung from a cord that is strung and folded over the balconies in the Library’s main lobby, creating a dynamic, flowing wave in bold colors, reflecting the beauty and power of water.
