What’s Up? Media Exhibit 14: “Wonders of Water”


Water is immensely powerful. It is essential to life, yet capable of causing destruction and chaos. We admire its dynamic properties from the way it ebbs and flows to loud crashing waves and serene moments of calm and stillness. Water can be all of these things and more. This new exhibit offers artists an opportunity to be inspired by the wonders of water.

What’s Up? Media new exhibit displays the beautiful two-dimensional work of local Anne Arundel County artists. Exhibits rotate every four months, each with a new theme. This exhibit is located at 201 Defense Highway in Annapolis. Hours are Monday – Friday, 8 AM to 6 PM.
