Museum Mondays: Watermarks: Water and the Human Experience

December 4, 2015 at 4:46 pm

Watermarks Poster 

Watermarks: Water and the Human Experience is a collection of art and artifacts depicting the ways communities use water in their daily lives. It represents how humans have used water as a means of transportation and adapted to the excess or absence of it. It even explores the many myths around the world about water and water’s spiritual context.

Museum studies students in the exhibition design and development class spent the semester creating the exhibit. Splitting up into curatorial teams, groups worked on individual cases, as well as on teams for registration, content development, and design. Visit the Shaw Galley, located on the second floor of the Logan Museum of Anthropology, to learn how human lives are shaped by water in Watermarks: Water and the Human Experience. The exhibit opens December 10 at 12 p.m. and will run through June 2016.

Refreshments will be served at the exhibit opening.
