Celebrating the virtues of work on Labor Day

September 2, 2013

More than 500 visitors stopped by the Museum of Work & Culture on Labor Day to take advantage of its offer of free admission all-day Monday and also to participate in special programs, including a new one-act play and the opening of an exhibit on the Italian Workingmen’s Club in the upstairs gallery, according to Raymond H. Bacon, museum co-manager with Anne Conway.

“It went very, very well,” Bacon said of the museum’s 14th annual special opening for Labor Day. “I am so pleased that the IWC is celebrating its 85th Anniversary with an exhibit at the museum.”
