The Water Bar is open to the community for water

Water Bar – a combination of water, art, and social infrastructure that has been a hit across the state – is located in a new storefront at 2518 Central Avenue NE in Minneapolis.  With watertenders serving water from various cities, Water Bar has been on site in many locations, including the State Fair and the annual conference of the Minnesota Section of American Water Works Association.

Every Saturday the Water Bar is open and serving free tap water from around the metro and beyond.

Stop in, slow down, really taste water, think about where it comes from, and our connection to it. Volunteer Water Tenders answer questions, ask questions, and help make connections. Spend time with the current exhibition or spread out your supplies and make some art of your own. You never know who you’ll run into at Water Bar.
