As the drought carries on across California, everyone’s got water on the brain.
Local artist William Barnhill explores water scarcity in his exhibit What, Me Worry?, a three-dimensional commentary about the persistent water situation in Cambria, on display at the Cambria Center for the Arts.
The piece is a fountain, featuring the likeness of Alfred E. Newman of Mad magazine fame and depicts local water concerns funneling into his head and pouring out as a stream of water from a spigot on the other side and into a bucket. A water tank on wheels is marked “748 GALLONS,” a number familiar to Cambrians as a single unit of water measured and billed for by the Cambria Community Services District.
The piece will be on display through Sept. 25. Call 927-8190 for more information.
