August 2016-April 2017, Wyoming Humanities Council’s collaborative tour of the Smithsonian Museum on Main Street traveling exhibit Water/Ways

Water/Ways. Water is a critical resource. An essential component of life on our planet, water powers the environment’s engine, impacting climate and helping to shape and sculpt the landscape. Water’s impact on humans is not just biological and environmental; it serves as a source of peace and contemplation. 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. 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, State Humanities Councils, and local sponsors. Information on the Water/Ways program is available at Information on the Wyoming Humanities Council is available at
