Water/Ways presented by the Arizona Humanities and Smithsonian

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

The Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibition dives into water--an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally, and historically. This national exhibit is coming to Arizona in 2018, and will be paired with local exhibits developed to extend the national exhibit with information specific to each community hosting the exhibit tour. In societies across the globe, water serves as a source of peace and contemplation. Many faiths revere water as a sacred symbol. Globally, the complex character of water inspires authors and artists. Yet, water also plays a practical role in all societies. 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. American creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment. Presented by Victoria Hermosilla
