Did you drink enough water today? First Lady Michelle Obama served as a reminder to grab a another bottle as she supported a museum exhibit in its drink-more-water message on Thursday to celebrate the fourth anniversary of her campaign against childhood obesity. 

Michelle Obama paid a visit to the New Museum in New York where she signed artwork and spoke to eighth-grade students who helped paint the exhibit that features 14 artists. "You guys are going to make a huge, huge impact on the health of our nation," she told the group, according to the Associated Press.

The show will be featured in museums and galleries in Washington, D.C., and other cities around the country.

Obama walked through the museum with Rose Cameron, who founded a bottled-water company called WAT-AAH! to appeal to children. The brand is one of the partners behind bringing the exhibit to life.

In addition to this stop, the first lady is also set to appear on Jimmy Fallon's new Tonight Show and record interviews with Extra, The Rachael Ray Show, Despierta America and other shows to continue pushing her health and wellness initiatives.
