Smithsonian Exhibition Exploring the American Workforce Coming to the Pioneer Florida MuseumName: Smithsonian Exhibition Exploring the American Workforce Coming to the Pioneer Florida MuseumDate: January 28, 2017 - March 18, 2017Website: http://www.PioneerFloridaMuseum.orgEvent Description:
The Pioneer Florida Museum & Village, in cooperation with Florida Humanities Council, will explore the professions and the people that sustain American society when it hosts “The Way We Worked,” a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition.
The Way We Worked,” adapted from an original exhibition developed by the National Archives and Records Administration, explores how work has become a central element in American culture. It traces the many changes that have affected the workforce and work environments over the past 150 years, including the growth of manufacturing and increasing use of technology. The exhibition draws from the Archives’ rich collections, including historical photographs, archival accounts of workers, film, audio and inter-actives, to tell the compelling story of how work impacts our individual lives and the historical and cultural fabric of our communities.
This great exhibition will be on view January 28, 2017 through March 18, 2017 at the Pioneer Florida Museum.
