‘Shaped by Water’ on tap at museum

The role of water in shaping the history of Santa Clara Valley – and how its use will shape the future – is the subject of the Los Altos History Museum’s upcoming exhibition, “Shaped by Water: Past, Present, and Future,” scheduled Oct. 8 through April 22.

Through photographs, art, stories and interactive activities, organizers designed the exhibition to give visitors a greater appreciation for the role water plays in daily life and to impart new ideas to protect and preserve the essential resource. To augment the exhibition, the museum has scheduled complementary educational programs and events.

The public is invited to attend the opening reception for the exhibition, scheduled 6-8:30 p.m. Oct. 15 at the museum, 51 S. San Antonio Road. The Riveropolis opening includes two days of family fun, noon to 4 p.m. Oct. 15 and 16.
