The Park City Museum is thrilled to announce a collaboration with Utah Humanities to bring The Way We Worked, a Museum on Main Street (MoMS) exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution on year-long tour through Utah. Park City is the final stop on the tour.
The Way We Worked exhibition examines the strength and spirit of American workers through archival images, compelling videos, and fascinating interviews. As the tour makes its way through Utah, we’ll be reminded that “we aren’t the Beehive state for nothing!” and will better understand how work is a key component of Utah’s own identity.
To accompany and complement the Smithsonian exhibition, the Park City Museum has created a new exhibition, The Way Park City Worked. The exhibition tells the stories of several Park City workers pre-1950, who pursued careers outside the mining industry, when mining was the backbone of Park City’s economy. In addition to the exhibitions, there are many family-friendly, no-cost events such as a writing workshop, storytelling, film screening, and book club discussion.
The Way We Worked has been made possible in Utah by Utah Humanities. The exhibition, created by the National Archives, is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
