UPCOMING EXHIBITION | STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION
Join us for the Water|Ways tour of Utah in 2020-2021.
Water is life. It forms our world and our lives. It allows us to travel; it blocks our paths. It is crucial in determining where we live and work and what we eat and drink. It is an essential biological and natural resource that people struggle to access and control. Water shapes human culture – our ways of life. It is central to many rituals and ceremonies around the world. It inspires art and music. Consider how you would tell your own water story... What does water mean to you? What role does water play in your work, your town, your neighborhood, and your worldview? Think about your water/ways...
