13,699, the installation created to raise awareness of the shrinking availability of clean water, will be featured at Down:2:Earth, A Green Living Festival (www.d2eboston.com) at the John B. Hynes Memorial Convention Center on 900 Boylston Street in Boston on April 9, 10, and 11. Hundreds of volunteers from colleges, high schools, and other public venues helped to produce this memorial to those who die every day from preventable, water-related diseases because clean water is not available. The 10 x 10 x 8´ fluid cube of hanging, recycled, plastic water bottle caps will be in the main floor lobby. The hours are 5 to 9pm on Friday, April 9th, 11 to 7 on Saturday, the 10th, and 11 to 5 on Sunday, the 11th. Admission is free and open to the public. I'll be there most of the time.
