KAY HERBST HELMS: WATERSHED MOMENTS
“A watershed is the area where all the water that falls on the earth within that area ends up in the same place, usually a river or stream. Everyone lives in a watershed, no matter where you live.”
Herbst Helms’ exhibition of photographs tells the story of the Seven Mile Creek Watershed Partnership-a group of people who share a common interest in the health of the water in this particular watershed.
“In the spring of 2016, I was invited to become a part of this Seven Mile Creek Watershed. We came from diverse backgrounds – farmers, SWCD, EPA, county government, a college professor, watershed residents, county park users and others who were interested in farming practices and water quality. My role would be to tell our story through photographs which would culminate in this exhibition thanks to a Career Development Grant from Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council.
I hope my photographs provoke questions and encourage conversation, as well as provide inspiration and incentive to get involved in water issues. Check out www.7-milecreek.org.”
Kay Herbst Helms was a recipient of a Career Development Grant from Prairie Lake Regional Arts Council with funding from the McKnight Foundation.
