“The Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibit dives into Arizona water. Water is an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally, and historically. This national exhibit will be in Arizona 2018 through 2020, and will be paired with local exhibits developed to extend the national exhibit with Arizona water 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.”    –www.waterwaysaz.org

Water/Ways is made possible in Arizona by Arizona Humanities and the Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives and School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University (ASU).
