“Water/Ways” Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit at Guntersville Museum

August 26-October 3, 2021

The Smithsonian Institution’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.

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 economic planning. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.

Exhibit is in partnership with the Alabama Humanities Foundation.
