Water/Ways exhibit at the Barron Library in LaBelle explores the relationship between people and water
There is an exhibit on display now at the Barron Library in LaBelle called Water/Ways. It’s a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities, and was adapted from an exhibition organization by the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Water/Ways 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.
The exhibit is part of what’s called Museum on Main Street and is part of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
We learn about this new exhibit with Nicole Hellard, director of the Barron Library; and Dr. Brandon Jett, professor of history at Florida SouthWestern State College.
