A Seven-State Project
Exploring the History and Meaning
of the Colorado River.

From December 2001 through July 2002, the seven states that share the waters of the Colorado (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming) collaborated on a project to generate regional consciousness of the river.

Moving Waters took place 22 communities, some along the river, some far from the river, but all dependent on the river.

Major project components included:

  On the Move: a Traveling Exhibit

  In the Air: a Six-Part
Radio Documentary

  Water Wars: an Introduction to the Law of the River

  Reading the River: Book Discussion Programs

  The River WE Know: community self-portraits
