Matt Damon at WWTC for World Water Day
Co-Founders of Water.org, Matt Damon and Gary White were at Westfield World Trade Center on World Water Day, March 22, to launch an interactive art exhibition, “The Water Clouds by Stella Artois” to raise awareness of the global water crisis.
As a partner of Water.org, Stella Artois’ exhibition encouraged New Yorkers to purchase a limited edition Stella Artois chalice, and add a “bubble” to the installation. For every chalice sold, Stella Artois pledged to help Water.org provide one person in the developing world with clean water for five years.
Brought to life by internationally renowned art and architecture practice Snarkitecture, “The Water Clouds by Stella Artois” is a visual representation of the number of people in the developing world who will gain access to clean water through the “Buy A Lady A Drink” campaign.
“We’re pleased to be able to work with Stella Artois and Water.org to help bring awareness to this important issue through an installation within Westfield World Trade Center at the Oculus on World Water Day. Our intent is to create an environment that engages visitors and commuters in honor the mission of World Water Day, inviting them to pause and sit for a moment, as they reflect on the spherical forms suspended within The Oculus.”
Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham, Co-Founders of Snarkitecture
“Three years into the partnership with Stella Artois, it’s inspiring to see what we’ve been able to accomplish and the lives that we’ve changed. We’ve always said that the only way to solve the world’s biggest problems is by coming together, and today is an example of just that.”
