The DeLuce Gallery presents a group exhibition of ceramic water jars based on the design of the Potters for Peace Water Filter.
The display will run from Sept. 8 through Oct. 3 in room 244 of the Fine Arts Building at Northwest Missouri State University. Since 1998, Potters for Peace has been developing a low-tech, low-cost colloidal silver enhanced ceramic water filter. The ultimate objective of the project is to help meet an urgent need for safe water in rural and marginalized communities all over the world. The university’s Olive DeLuce Building will be home to a lecture by Professor Richard Wukich at 7 p.m. Sept. 8 He will present a talk on the water filter projects he has initiated in Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan and Honduras.
