Smithsonian Water/Ways Exhibit on Display at Hickory Knob State Resort Park
Developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), the elaborate water-themed exhibit will be on display at Hickory Knob State Resort Park, McCormick SC from June 27 through August 8th.
The Smithsonian’s Water/Ways exhibition dives into water--an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally, and historically. In societies across the globe, water serves as a source of peace and contemplation. Many faiths revere water as a sacred symbol. Authors and artists are inspired by the complex character of water - a substance that is seemingly soft and graceful that is yet a powerful and nearly unstoppable force.
Water also plays a practical role 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. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.
The Water/Ways has been made possible in South Carolina by South Carolina Humanities and is part of the Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils across the country. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
For more information, visit the exhibition website at www.MuseumonMainStreet.org/water. The exhibit is open to the public and is free of charge.
The E-Club met in person Feb. 8th for training and fellowship to Celebrate Rotary International's Birthday [ Feb.23rd] !
