Water, the Source of Civilizations

Presented by Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University


What can works of art tell us about a culture’s relationship to water? Civilizations throughout time and across the globe have responded in different ways to the excess or scarcity of this most important and precious of molecules. Enjoy a guided tour of the collections of Emory's Michael C. Carlos Museum, engaging with works of art that relate directly to water in daily life, religious ritual, and more.
