Smithsonian Museums on Main Street coming 2015
The Arts Council is pleased to be a partner with the City of Plainwell to bring "The Way We Worked" which opens June 6, 2015 and will continue through July 19, 2015.
The Way We Worked was created by the National Archives with the support of the Foundation for the National Archives, and is organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). The exhibition was previously on view from December 2005 through May at the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C.
Work and the workplace have gone through enormous changes between the mid-19th century, when 60 percent of Americans made their living as farmers, and the late 20th century. A new traveling exhibition, The Way We Worked, will feature 86 photographs from the National Archives focusing on the history of work in America and documenting work clothing, locales, conditions and conflicts.
IN ADDITION to the Exhibit the Arts Council will feature a History of the mill in photos and also highlight various employers from the past through photos.
We are seeking volunteers to check in visitors and be docents. If you are interested please use the "Contact PAC" button on the left.
