Arizona Humanities and the Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives and School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University are pleased to announce an exclusive Arizona tour of Water/Ways, a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution.
Water/Ways explores the endless motion of the water cycle, its effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality. It looks at political and economic efforts to ensure access to water, and explores how human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways to protect water resources and renew our relationship with the natural environment.
Designed for small-town museums, libraries and cultural organizations, Water/Ways will serve as a community meeting place to convene conversations about water’s impact on American culture. Towns will develop complementary exhibits, host public programs, and facilitate educational initiatives to deepen people’s understanding about what water means culturally, socially and spiritually in their own community.

Seventy-one percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Water impacts climate, agriculture, transportation, energy, and industry. It inspires art, literature, and music.
Water/Ways focuses on the relationships between people and water. How has water shaped our history and traditions? How does it impact our daily life? How will the relationship between people and water evolve in the future?
