The Kansas Humanities Council has announced that the Eudora Community Museum will host the traveling Smithsonian exhibition “Water/Ways” in the summer of 2017. The Eudora Community Museum will be the first museum in Kansas to host the exhibit. The exhibit will be at the museum for a period of six weeks, from June 24, 2017 until August 6, 2017. The “Water/Ways” exhibit focuses on the numerous relationships between people and water. How has water shaped our history and traditions? How does it impact our daily life? What does the future hold for water?
In addition to hosting the Smithsonian exhibit, the Eudora Community Museum will also develop complimentary programming and a companion exhibit focusing on the Water/Ways of the Eudora area. The “Water/Ways” exhibit will be promoted throughout the state, which means great promotion for the Eudora Community Museum and Eudora. The “Water/Ways” exhibit has the potential to attract thousands of visitors to the Eudora Community Museum and downtown Eudora.
The Eudora Community Museum is located at 720 Main Street in historic downtown Eudora. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturdays and can be reached at 785-690-7900.
