Water/Ways Grand Opening
Join Amelia Island Museum of History as they welcome Water/Ways with two exciting programs. At 1pm, the museum is presenting a panel discussion with representatives from local environmental groups, including the Amelia Tree Conservancy and Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch. Then at 2pm, the Museum is conducting a live oral history with the Foar from Home team about their experiences rowing across the Atlantic. Both of these programs will be held on the Main Stage at the Amelia Community Theatre, next door to the Museum. This program accompanies the Water/Ways Smithsonian exhibit on display at the Amelia Island Museum of History. 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.
