The Cambridge Main Street  is the fourth of six Maryland sites to host Water/Ways, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, brought to the state by the Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. Water/Ways will be open to the public at Dorchester Center for the Arts in Cambridge for six weeks, from October 19 to November 30, 2019, Sunday, Noon to 4 pm; Tuesday through Thursday, Noon to 6 pm; and Friday and Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm.

Companion exhibit showcases Dorchester’s water story

If you live or play on the Chesapeake Bay, you know how important water is to the environment, the seafood industry, recreation and more. Dorchester County has received a Maryland Heritage Areas Authority Grant to develop a companion exhibit that focuses on Dorchester County’s unique water story.

The local exhibit, which will share space with the Smithsonian exhibit, will showcase everything from the cockpit of a racing boat to a traditional oyster shucking table. Related events include a guided kayak tour, skipjack sails, art exhibits, live music, history talks and more!

Maryland H2O shines the spotlight on it, through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street tour of the traveling exhibit Water/Ways, the Smithsonian exhibition H2O Today, and engaging programs to spark a statewide discussion about water.
