Through photographs from the National Archives, audio and video clips, and hands-on components, Kansans will discover how, together, our work makes America.
The Kansas Humanities Council sponsors the Kansas Tour of “The Way We Worked” in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution. “The Kansas Humanities Council is pleased to be able to bring the cultural resources of the nationís premier museum to Kansas communities,” said Julie Mulvihill, executive director of the Kansas Humanities Council. “Our six hosts were selected because of their compelling local ‘work stories’ and their innovative exhibition plans to use the Smithsonian exhibition as a springboard to explore, preserve, and share these stories in their communities. “The Kansas Humanities Council conducts and supports community-based programs, serves as a financial resource through an active grant-making program, and encourages Kansans to participate in their communities.
