Home\The Rainbow: Public Art with Purified Recycled Water

 Registration is closed for this event

In the words of California Governor Gavin Newson, “The greatest challenge facing California is access to water. And the greatest challenge facing water access is public understanding. The Rainbow will capture public imagination and accelerate popular acceptance of water recycling.”

The Rainbow is a planned public artwork by artist Michael Jones McKean, envisioned to catalyze the implementation of Direct Potable Reuse. An advanced purification system (MBR, RO, UVAOP) will treat raw wastewater to potable standards to produce water for The Rainbow. Set against the iconic landscapes of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay, and using only the site’s natural sunlight and the purified recycled water, artist Michael Jones McKean and partners San Francisco Art Institute and Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture (FMCAC) will create a massive water wall in which The Rainbow will emerge at daily intervals. The goal of the project is to eventually transform FMCAC into California’s first decentralized DPR community.
