The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street will bring the exhibition entitled “The Way We Worked” to Wetumpka on May 23. It will be the final appearance for the exhibition in the state.
The traveling exhibition “directly engages small town audiences and brings revitalized attention to underserved rural communities through their own Main Street museums, historical societies and other cultural venues,” according to Museum on Main Street website.
The exhibition was made possible in the state by the Alabama Humanities Foundation. It will be shown in the Elmore County Museum through July 6 with hours for the “The Way We Worked” scheduled for Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The Way We Worked” will feature the following presentations:
• “Working by the River” - a joint endeavor of the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce and the Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery. Encompasses a series of special events that will take place in downtown Wetumpka and throughout the River Region this summer. The Smithsonian exhibition, “The Way We Worked,” has been the impetus and inspiration for a series of other events and exhibitions that will run concurrently.
• “Alabama at Work” - focusing on the history of work in Alabama and specifically Elmore County. The exhibition will feature competitively chosen original artwork depicting the theme and a series of storyboards which will include the history of work in the 180 years of Wetumpka’s history.
• “Dixie Art Colony: a Look at Its Legacy” - the retrospective exhibition will explore the life and work of famed Wetumpka artist Kelly Fitzpatrick who was a founder and mainstay of the Dixie Art Colony on Lake Jordan. The Dixie Art Colony was a place for struggling artists to work, study and play during The Great Depression and into the 1940s.
“Alabama at Work” and “Dixie Art Colony: a Look at Its Legacy” hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays at the Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery in the City of Wetumpka Administrative Building.
Both “Alabama at Work” and “Dixie Art Colony: a Look at Its Legacy” will also explore President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s depression era economic stimulus program the WPA Federal Art Project. Docent tours of “Dixie Art Colony: a Look at Its Legacy” and “Alabama at Work” will be available to the public on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Art Walk” in historic downtown Wetumpka will also be available for viewing at leisure. The works of art are copies of original work submitted by artists and placed in downtown storefront windows. At the same time these exhibitions are in place an extensive calendar of special events is planned, including special tours available in Tallassee and Millbrook, a night of storytelling in Wetumpka and a series of lectures.
