Celebrate World Water Day with a thought-provoking talk by Giulio Boccaletti, author of one of The Economist's best books of 2021, Water: A Biography


Take a deep dive into the significance of this elemental substance as Boccaletti explores our relationship with water, the roles it has played throughout history, how it has inspired art and culture, and how we can combat water scarcity by working to preserve what we have left of this finite source. 


Continue your journey through the impact and understanding of this essential element in the Museum Collections Gallery with an introduction to our themed installation, Water with Associate Curator Bita Pourvash.
