    River People - inaugural exhibition of a long project of the social cultures and life along four of the world's great rivers; the Niger river, the Ganges, the Amazon, and the Mississippi

Major rivers provide thousands of kilometers of lifeblood to millions of people on a daily basis. For these people, rivers are more than squiggly blue lines on a map. They are thermometers of environmental change, economic highways, power generators, ablutions for the national consciousness, battlegrounds of political wrangling, or a spot to wash their clothes.
