If you’ve visited the Water Bar on Central Avenue NE or the Water Bar pop-up at the State Fair, you understand – it’s unique, hard to explain, a free-flowing font of ideas and energy. The good news is that the tap is on again at the Central Avenue site.
Actually, it’s almost the same site….For several weeks the Water Bar has been closed for remodeling and a move – to just next door at 2518 Central Avenue NE. Beginning October 14 the taproom reopens to the public on Thursday and Friday evenings until 8:00 PM and on Saturdays from Noon to 8:00 PM.
Disregarding the fates, hosts Shanai Matteson and Colin Kloecker are planning a grand reopening reception 6:00-9:00 PM on Friday, October 13.
The reception will celebrate the opening of the relocated facility’s first exhibition, “The exhibit, which will be open October 14-January 14, 2019, features the photography of Zoe Prinds-Flash and Crystal Liepa, along with Water Bar co-owner and photographer Colin Kloecker. The photographers spent a summer photographing and recording the stories of residents along the Mississippi River National River and Recreation Area.
The exhibition and the site are designed to share that experience and to inspire those who live and work near the Mississippi to connect with and care for the River. Volunteer “Water Tenders” and special guests will be serving tap water while they lead conversations and activities that blend public art, science education and place-based environmental advocacy.
