The Smithsonian is coming to Warriors’ Path Stat Park – Local Artists Welcome

The Smithsonian is coming to Warriors’ Path State Park!
June 24 – August 6, 2017

Free and open to the public daily from 12 NOON to 6:00 PM
(at the park’s Recreation Building on Duck Island)

This Smithsonian exhibition dives into water! “Water | Ways” helps us to consider how we use water and what water symbolizes to us; how water unites and divides communities and how people resolve conflicts over this resource; how water affects the way we live, work, create, play and worship; and how we care for our water and protect it for future generations.

How would you like your work to be on display at the Smithsonian Institution? Well, here’s your chance! Your work could be an important part of the exhibit! The theme of “Water | Ways” is how water affects the way we live, work, create, play and worship, and how we care for our water and protect it for future generations. The exhibit will include a display of local art called “Art | Ways”. This is NOT a contest. The only “prize” is the knowledge that your work has been displayed at the Smithsonian, and has helped exhibit-goers gain deeper insights into the importance of water to our region. You need not be a full-time professional artist to have your work represented. Please choose your best piece and submit it for consideration.

See the three attached flyers for more information.
