The Way We Worked opens at its fifth and final stop on the statewide tour at Salisbury University Art Galleries Downtown, on view from September 15 through November 3, 2017.

The Way We Worked is a Smithsonian traveling exhibition that 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 diversity of the American workforce is one of its strengths, providing an opportunity to explore how people of all races and ethnicities identified commonalities and worked to knock down barriers in the professional world. The exhibition shows how we identify with work—as individuals and as communities.

A local companion exhibition draws on the Nabb Center for Delmarva History and Culture’s collection to tell the local story of working on the Eastern Shore. Other community partners including Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum, The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, and The Julia A. Purnell Museum deepen this story through demonstrations of traditional crafts, gallery tours, and lectures. Stay tuned for details on these special events and programs.
