As part of the year-long Connecticut at Work initiative by CT Humanities, southeastern CT is hostingThe Way We Worked, an exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institution that draws on the National Archives' rich photographic collections to document 150 years of changing work life in America. The free exhibition is on view at the Groton Public Library from Nov. 8 to Dec. 21.
The exhibition has been touring the state for a year, and the Groton location is the final stop in Connecticut. As part of Connecticut at Work, the Groton library, Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition and other historic and educational venues in the region will sponsor author talks, films, music, theater, art, community conversations, storytelling, local history and book discussions relating to work from September through December.
Connecticut at Work is a year-long initiative of Connecticut Humanities about the past, present and future of work life in Connecticut. For a detailed calendar of events and more information, visitwww.CultureSECT.org
