Waters abound in Indiana’s rivers and lakes, but there are also drained, obscured and unseen waters. Much of Indiana’s history has been affected by the availability, movement, redirection and innate properties of water.Ebb and Flowwill highlight some of these forgotten waters and the history behind this essential element (it’s really a compound!). Created and curated by IU faculty members Eric Sandweiss, Betsy Stirratt, and Tracy Templeton, the exhibit will touch on the history of mineral waters (French Lick, Martinsville and Mudlavia; underground waters (Jordan River, caves, and groundwater);buried/filled in rivers and canals, (the Wabash and Erie Canal);and drained wetlands and lakes (the Kankakee Marsh and Beaver Lake).
