The Water/Ways coloring book is fun and educational for all ages! The coloring book features images and stories from the six organizations hosting Water/Ways in North Carolina. These stories illustrate the human experience, the power, the tragedy, and the beauty of water in their communities. The images come from North Carolina artists, photographers, and historical collections and were transformed into black and white illustrations. The coloring book also features an essay on North Carolina waters by renowned environmental writer Bland Simpson.
We are proud to host Water/Ways a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street (MoMS) program from August 30, 2020 through October 10, 2020.
