We Are Water MN, a traveling exhibit, is on display January 9 to March 12 in the State Capitol’s East Corridor, ground level. You can visit it any time the capitol is open to the public.
We Are Water MN is led by the Minnesota Humanities Center, in partnership with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Minnesota Historical Society, and Minnesota Departments of Natural Resources, Health, and Agriculture.
We Are Water MN explores the connections between the humanities and water through an exhibit, public events and educator resources. Visitors reflect on local stories and the meaning and experiences of water in Minnesota with space to add their own stories. By creating relationships around water, we are creating networks that can promote positive social norms, and share a vision for and participate in water stewardship.
- Learn about drinking water quality and threats to our drinking water resources.
- Listen to stories from parents, children, fishers, famers, indigenous Minnesotans, immigrants to Minnesota, water professionals, and people who just love to be out on the lake.
While you are at the Capitol:
- Check out the water-themed, student-created posters in room 318, sharing creativity and ideas for protecting drinking water.
- Peek at the Mississippi River. While on 3rd floor, pass through the library (317A) and peek out the window. Many windows at the capitol have amazing views, but these are the only windows where you can see the Mississippi River.
- Take a free guided tour to get an overview of Capitol history, art, architecture, and state government. See the Minnesota Historical Society website for more information.
- Teachers may also download resources.
