Waters Rising explores the research undertaken by ODU ICAR to strengthen coastal resilience in Hampton Roads. Museum visitors will ponder the causes of rising water levels in Norfolk, learn about ODU’s Innovative Blue Line Project, hear local flood stories, and explore ideas for reducing vulnerability and planning for the future.

Waters Rising serves as a complement to FloodZone, Anastasia Samoylova’s photographic investigation into the physical and psychological effects of sea-level rise along South Florida’s coastline. Together, Waters Rising and FloodZone offer searching analyses of two regions situated on the frontlines of climate change, uniting distinct coastal communities to examine pressing concerns facing us all.
