Smithsonian Water/ Ways Exhibit
March 15 - April 21
The Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibition dives into water–an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally, and historically.
In societies across the globe, water serves as a source of peace and contemplation. Many faiths revere water as a sacred symbol. Authors and artists are inspired by the complex character of water – a substance that is seemingly soft and graceful that is yet a powerful and nearly unstoppable force.
Water also plays a practical role in American society. The availability of water affected settlement and migration patterns. Access to water and control of water resources have long been a central part of political and economic planning. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.
The Water/Ways Exhibit is on display at The Sue Ross Center is open 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Monday -Friday. and 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. on Saturdays
