Flint Water was an art installation, a performance and an intervention that called attention to the water crisis in Flint by bottling its tap water and selling it as a limited edition artwork in an artist-run gallery in Detroit. In 2014, the city of Flint, Michigan, changed its water supply in order to save money. That decision and a host of subsequent and related decisions on local, state and federal levels created a crisis. Water quality was mismanaged, citizens were poisoned, and in the fallout of criminal charges and lawsuits, many Flint residents still do not have access to reliable, safe water. Flint Water Project called attention to the city’s continued plight while raising funds to support Flint citizens in their struggle.
