Exhibition Opening | Our River Is Our Community & Film Premier | River Omens


Jul 18, 2020, 5:00 pm

Join us Saturday July 18 for a celebration of the river! Enjoy free admission to the museum from 5:00-7:00 pm for this special after-hours event:

Exhibit Opening: "Our River is Our Community"
The Green River is essential to life and culture in southeastern Utah. Explore the significance of the river in our community's past, present, and future.
Our River is Our Community was inspired by the Smithsonian traveling exhibition Water/Ways, coming to Green River in April 2021.

Film Premier: "River Omens"
Snaking through eastern Utah, the Green River speaks with simple power to those who have eyes to listen.
Short film created by Sam Cox (Epicenter Frontier Fellow) featuring Green River local boatman Clarence Smith.

These projects were made possible with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Utah Division of Arts & Museums, City of Green River, the nonprofit board of John Wesley Powell River History Museum, and Utah Humanities.

Think Water Utah, presented by Utah Humanities and its partners, is a statewide collaboration and conversation on the critical topic of water.

Water/Ways is a part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution, Utah Humanities, and the John Wesley Powell River History Museum.

***The health of our staff and visitors is our top priority. We will be monitoring attendance and traffic flows throughout the event to facilitate social distancing. Masks are very welcome but not required, and hand sanitizer will be available to all guests.***
