In honor of the upcoming World Water Week August 21-27, when environmental leaders from across the globe will convene in Stockholm – Duravit has sponsored the Water is Life poster competition that calls students and young artists to action through artistic interpretation.
The posters are now part of a traveling exhibition currently stopped at Duravit’s headquarters in the Black Forest of Germany, where it will remain until September 10th.
The competition’s results surpassed all expectations: more than 5,000 artists from 83 countries adopted their own creative approaches, using a wide variety of different motifs to present their take on the message “Water is Life”. Winning works will travel around the world throughout 2011.
Posters (€ 59.00 plus VAT, postage and shipping) and Postcard sets of 15 (€ 10 plus VAT) may be ordered through the German Central Sanitary, Heating and Air-conditioning Association (ZVSHK) by contacting Mrs. Anne Schumacher via phone (+49 22 41 92 99) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
