Open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Gallery of Fine Craft

Water/Ways, an exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street, explores the relationship between people and water. It explores the centrality of water in our lives including its effect on the environment and climate, its practical role in agriculture and economic planning, and its impact on culture and spirituality.

From above, Earth appears as a water planet with more than 71 percent of its surface covered with this vital resource for life. Water impacts climate, agriculture, transportation, industry and more. It inspires art and music. WheatonArts, in cooperation with the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, will examine water as an environmental necessity and an important cultural element as it hosts the traveling “Water/Ways” exhibition.


October 15 (Tuesday) 10:00 am - November 17 (Sunday) 5:00 pm
