Water topic of traveling Smithsonian exhibition at Kanab Heritage Museum
Water/Ways is a well done and fascinating traveling Smithsonian exhibition that dives into water – an essential component of life on our planet, environmentally, culturally and historically.
The water right exhibition explores the idea that while water is widely considered a community resource, the cultural values of different societies in the Kanab region over time have caused water resources to be allocated in different ways.
According to Kanab Heritage Museum Director Emily Bentley, the informative exhibit began in October and will continue through December 13. It is a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Utah Humanities Council. Funding came through Utah Humanities and Kanab City.
“I am hoping to get more community members to come and visit the exhibit and think about your water/ways. What does water mean to you?” said Bentley.
The Kanab Heritage Museum is located at 13 South 100 East in Kanab. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come in and check it out!
