International Artists with a Common Vision, a Common Concern, and a Common Method
At its core, Take Me to the River is an international group of artists who share a common vision of building bridges across borders. To date, we have represented Brazil, Cuba, Egypt, Germany, Pakistan, Peru, South Africa, and the United States. Through artwork, we transcend language barriers–we speak a more universal language of visual expression. In our efforts to come together and build bridges, we have also adopted a primary activist concern–the river. Through our projects we are able to effectively address environmental concerns about water, involving whole communities around the world. What distinguishes us from other art cooperatives then, is our diversity tied together by three qualities: our vision of building bridges, our environmental activism, and our involvement with communities.
