“Morristown: In the Air and Sun” will be screened in the museum’s Performance Theater on Thursday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m. A working class response to globalization, this hour-length documentary looks at the issues of immigration, factory flight, and the organized demand for economic justice. The film is free and open to the public.
This film screening is part of the programming to accompany our special exhibit “Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones.” The exhibit chronicles the rich variety of manufacturing traditions in Tennessee over the past 2 ½ centuries from the early agricultural and craft heritage to our current age of advanced technology and global competition. The diverse panels and artifacts highlight the history of manufacturing in Tennessee, while also featuring a huge variety of the industries and companies that were once found – or still exist – throughout the state, including several local manufacturers.
