Irvine is thrilled to present its latest Art at City Hall exhibition series entitled Deep Water/Deep Earth. The underground waterways in Irvine are transformed into a collection of exciting collages, prints, and digital artworks.

According to the the city's website, the concept of the Deep Water/Deep Earth exhibit revolves around physical geography. Aquifers, cisterns, caves, pits and mines... These underground geographic features have important historical and cultural significance. What many people don't know is that there is a huge aquifer underneath the city of Irvine. It contains over 1 million acre feet of water that extends three-quarters of a mile deep and extends beyond the outer boundaries of Orange County. This resource remains largely invisible. But it affects every aspect of daily life. And it underscores humanity's deep dependence on the hidden depths of the earth, City Hall says in enticing visitors to the exhibit.
