The Way We Worked, an exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution, opens at The Museum Broken Arrow May 19 and continues through July 7. The exhibit uses videos, photos, interactive materials and artifacts to tell the story of the impact of work on American culture.
With busy hands and minds, American workers perform a diverse array of jobs to power our society. Work is part of nearly every American’s life, whether for professional satisfaction and personal growth or to ensure the well-being of their families. In offices, factories, on the road and at home, millions keep the nation going through contributions to industry and American culture.
The Way We Worked showcases how work became such a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and work environments over the past 150 years, exploring diversity in the professional world, how we as individuals and communities identify with work and through the experiences of multiple generations of families involved in the same industry.
The Museum Broken Arrow will host several special events and offerings in conjunction with the exhibit, with details available soon. For more information on The Museum Broken Arrow and The Way We Worked, visit BrokenArrowMuseum.org or call (918) 258-2616.
The Museum Broken Arrow is located at 400 S. Main Street in historic downtown Broken Arrow. The Museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
