The We Are Water Minnesota traveling exhibit is making a stop in the Morrison Gallery in the Humanities and Fine Arts building on the campus of the University of Minnesota Morris. The exhibit is supported by the Minnesota Humanities Center and a number of local partners. Troy Goodnough of the U of M Morris’s Office of Sustainability is acting as a docent for the exhibit and he told the KMRS Community Connection that the interactive exhibit is informative for all ages.
“What I’ve learned is there’s always some really great stories in our backyard that maybe we didn’t know about: the environment, the people, the history, and more,” said Goodnough. “And so, these exhibits really complement each other in a nice way, with lots of questions to explore as a family and a big focus on stories we can ask ourselves.”
The Gallery is also exhibiting a second prominent exhibition called Why Treaties Matter, which examines the history with the Native populations. That exhibit has been put together with assistance from the Smithsonian. The Morrison Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 9 to 5 Fridays, and Noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The exhibits will run through October 19th.
