Betsy Damon

Betsy Damon is an internationally recognized artist whose public work and living systems, such as the Living Water Garden, have received widespread acclaim.

Her inspiration comes from extensive research of sacred water sites, and her curiosity for the biology and earth sciences that compose living systems. Always seeking new ways to articulate the complexity of water and engage communities in caring for this precious resource, Betsy continues her passion.

She directs Keepers of the Waters, a non-profit focused on ecological planning, advocacy and education. Damon was a semi-finalist for the Buckminster Fuller Award and a finalist for the Stockholm Water Prize. Damon has lectured widely in the U.S., Europe and China. She’s been a visiting artist at countless colleges and universities.
