Associate Professor Beili Liu is part of a team of people invited by Women & Their Work to collaborate on the recently unveiled public art project THIRST, which memorializes the loss of over 500 million trees that died in the drought of 2011 and raises awareness of the importance of water conservation.

The stunning installation on Lady Bird Lake (between South Lamar and the adjacent pedestrian bridge) will be on display through December 20.
