Smithsonian Exhibition | H2O Today in Monticello

Jun 4–Oct 29, 2022, 10:00 am

Water is wonderful. But water is limited. And fragile.

H2O Today explores the beauty and essential nature of water, our planet’s lifeblood. The exhibition examines the diversity and challenges of our global water sources and promotes conversation, creativity, and innovation through art, science, and technology. The exhibition traveling in Utah also features our state's unique relationship with water and how it shapes how we live.

H2O Today is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and is touring Utah in partnership with Utah Humanities and the Canyon Country Discovery Center. The tour is part of Think Water Utah, a statewide collaboration and conversation on the critical topic of water presented by Utah Humanities and its partners. For more information, see

H2O Today was adapted from an exhibition organized by the American Museum of Natural History (New York) and the Science Museum of Minnesota (St. Paul), in collaboration with Great Lakes Science Center (Cleveland), Field Museum (Chicago), Instituto Sangari (Sao Paulo), National Museum of Australia (Canberra), Royal Ontario Museum (Toronto), San Diego Natural History Museum, and Science Centre Singapore.
