Smithsonian's Waterways Exhibit

At Hickory Knob State Resort Park

Water is life. It forms our world and our lives. It allows us to travel; it blocks our paths. It is crucial in determining where we live and work and what we eat and drink. It is an essential biological and natural resource that people struggle to access and control. Water shapes human culture — our ways of life. It is central to many rituals and ceremonies around the world. It inspires art and music. The Smithsonian’s Water|Ways exhibit explores our relationship to water and how all of these factors play out in our world. We invite you to experience it at Hickory Knob State Park, June 27 through August 8. There is no fee for admission to the exhibit or the park.
