The Museum on Main Street program is a national/state/local partnership to bring exhibitions and programs to rural cultural organizations.
Water/Ways will be on view until November 30 at the library. Community partner exhibits will also focus on local waterways and the history of water in our communities. “Water/Ways” explores the endless motion of the water cycle, water’s effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality. It looks at how political and economic planning have long been affected by access to water and control of water resources. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.
The complementary exhibits, public programs, and educational tour initiatives are intended to raise people’s understanding about what water means culturally, socially and spiritually in their own community. The public can participate in the conversation on social media at #thinkWater.
