Torrington, CT – The Warner Theatre will be host to The Way We Worked,an exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institution from January, 25, 2014 – March 9, 2014.

The Way We Worked draws on the National Archives’ rich photographic collections to document 130 years of changing work life in America. Using images, video, audio and interactive components, the exhibition reveals the effects of industrialization, urbanization, immigration, labor unrest, wars and economic depression on ordinary working Americans, whether they toiled in a coal mine, on a tractor, at a typewriter or on an assembly line.

Spanning the years 1857-1987, the exhibition’s 86 black-and-white and color photographs document, in rich visual detail, American workplaces, work clothing, working conditions and workplace conflicts. They also reflect a workforce shaped by immigration and ethnicity, slavery and racial segregation, wage labor and technology, gender roles and class, as well as by the American ideals of freedom and equality.

The exhibit will be located in the Warner's Nancy Marine Studio Theatre lobby and will be opened Thursdays & Fridays from 1-7pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm. Admission is free and open to the public.

The Way We Worked, an exhibition created by the National Archives, is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and CT Humanities.
