Water/Ways explores the endless motion of the water cycle, water’s effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality. It looks at how political and economic planning have long been affected by access to water and control of water resources. Human creativity and resourcefulness provide new ways of protecting water resources and renewing respect for the natural environment.

For the Hudson River Maritime Museum, Water/Ways serves as an opportunity to discuss not only the impact of the Hudson River on local and national society, but also to encourage members of the public to examine their own relationships to water: where it comes from, how they use it, and how their lives are or can be impacted by pollution and climate change.
