World Water Day

March 23, 2024

Free Admission

McAllen Public Utility and IMAS invite the community to celebrate World Water Day at the museum. Join us at IMAS as we learn more about our precious resource through hands-on learning demonstrations, presentations, and more.

The annual event is a collaboration effort between both organizations to honor World Water Day, which takes place internationally on March 22. World Water Day is an annual United Nations Observance focusing on the importance of freshwater.

The purpose of the United Nation’s World Water Day is to raise awareness of people who live without access to safe water and dedicated to ensuring no one is left behind and to make water a catalyst for a more peaceful world.

Natural Expressions: Collected Landscapes from the IMAS Vault celebrates visual artists who observed the natural scenes and creatively recorded what they saw. Explore the beauty of those vivid scenes and learn more about these works of art with guest curator Mary Nettie Rodriguez in this intimate gallery talk about about watercolor.
