TAKE ME TO THE RIVER (TMTTR), an artists’ collective nonprofit organization, is collaborating on a unique project with Octavia Art Gallery, KID smART, and five prominent regionally based artists. The project includes an outreach program with 24 second grade students, an art collaboration between TMTTR artists and New Orleans based artists, and an exhibition at Octavia Art Gallery.

TMTTR was founded in 2001 by an international collective of 16 multimedia artists who depict water as a subject of beauty and global importance. The group's mission is to raise awareness and appreciation for water as a vital natural resource in every community around the world. Member artists do this by portraying water-related themes and issues in exhibits and accompanying outreach projects with at-risk people in each community. TMTTR's exhibits and programs open opportunities for local, national and international cooperation in addressing global water challenges.

In keeping with the custom of all TMTTR projects, the artwork in the exhibition at Octavia Art Gallery references water. In addition to the collaborative work the TMTTR and New Orleans artists created together, work by each participating artist will also be exhibited - incorporating painting, photography, mixed media, video and assemblage work.
