Water/Ways Exhibit at Bayou Teche Museum

The Bayou Teche Museum, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, is presenting “Water/Ways,” a six-week traveling exhibit on display through Nov. 27, 2021.

With compelling text, imagery, interactives and videos, the “Water/Ways” exhibit reveals the central nature of water in our lives and takes a deep look at this essential component of life on our planet, which powers the environment’s engine, impacts climate and helps shape and sculpt the landscape.

The Bayou Teche Museum will also host, either virtually or in-person, weekly programming that will include both an adult and children’s book club, Water in Religion, a screening of the movie “Deepwater Horizon,” Water in Poetry featuring two Louisiana Poet Laureates and other local poets, as well as presentations by the Port of Delcambre and The Teche Project.
