    Event Description

    The Way We Worked

    The Mountain Heritage Center will host the Smithsonian exhibition The Way We Worked, adapted from an original exhibit developed by the National Archives.  The Way We Worked explores 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.  The exhibition draws from the Archives’ vast array of images to tell this compelling story and also includes artifacts from the Mountain Heritage Center’s collections.

    Attending the exhibit will be a DegreePlus activity and the exhibit is a featured event for WCU’s interdisciplinary theme: Defining America.
