Water/Ways, an exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street, explores the relationship between people and water. It explores the centrality of water in our lives including its effect on the environment and climate, its practical role in agriculture and economic planning, its impact on culture and spirituality, as well as its inspiring contributions to art and music. WheatonArts, in cooperation with the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH), will examine water as an environmental necessity and an important cultural element as it hosts the traveling “Water/Ways” exhibition. Open October 15 through November 17, 2019, Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Gallery of Fine Craft at WheatonArts.
Participate in a public discussion on Saturday, October 19, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. as NJCH hosts the “What is Your Water Story?” workshop and enjoy FREE admission to WheatonArts for the entire day, part of “Family Days! Presented by PNC Arts Alive!”
