Living Waters is a project of the Indiana Women’s Caucus for Art, centered around current threats to the Great Lakes water system, the largest fresh water supply found on earth.  These artworks were made in response to many concerns, including pollution, invasive species, water quality, and long-range public policy to protect this vulnerable natural resource.

The Women’s Caucus for Art was founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA). The WCA is a national member organization unique in its multidisciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students, educators and museum professionals.

The mission of the Women’s Caucus for Art is to create community through art, education and social activism.  WCA is committed to recognizing the contribution of women in the arts, providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development, expanding networking and exhibition opportunities for women, supporting local, national and global art activism and advocating for equity in the arts for all.

The Indiana Women’s Caucus for Art (IWCA) is a local chapter of the WCA, founded in South Bend, Indiana in 1978 with the mission of creating and expanding opportunities and recognition for women in art.  The IWCA provides ongoing support for members, including exhibitions, workshops, conferences and professional projects and activities.
