Water/Ways Exhibition Grand Opening in Port St. Lucie with Clyde Butcher
Come and celebrate the Grand Opening of the Water/Ways exhibition with a ribbon cutting from the St. Lucie Chamber of Commerce. Brought to us by the Smithsonian and Florida Humanities, Water/Ways explores the relationship between people and water, and the roles water plays on our planet, environment, culture, and history. Plus, attendees will get a chance to view the complementary Clyde Butcher Living Waters and the Florida Landscape photography exhibition. For the grand opening only, attendees will get a chance to meet with Clyde Butcher, the renowned photographer himself! Two exhibitions in one night equals a night sure to be filled with culture, history, art, connection, and fun for the whole family!
The City of Port St. Lucie is proud to host the Water/Ways exhibition as it advances our Strategic Plan in providing education on the importance of water quality including the need to protect the St. Lucie River and additional cultural offerings.
MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Event Center partners with St. Lucie County’s Oxbow Eco-Center, St. Lucie Chamber of Commerce, St. Lucie Cultural Alliance, Florida Humanities and the Smithsonian to bring the Water/Ways exhibition and enhanced programming to Port St. Lucie.
Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
