October 5 – November 17, 2019
Water’s impact upon humans is vast. In addition to biological and environmental significance in our lives, it has also permeated American culture.
This fall Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village will host Water/Ways, an exhibition from Museum on Main Street of the Smithsonian Institute, which will explore water as an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally, and historically.
With compelling text, imagery, interactives, and videos, Water/Ways reveals the central nature of water in our lives. Featuring:
- Smithsonian and local exhibits about history, culture, and science of water
- Events and education programs focused on our local community
- Stories from community members about water
- Ways to share your own memories and stories
Water/Ways has been made possible in Amherst, New York by the Museum Association of New York. Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
