On-Going Exhibit: Blue Collar, Pink Collar, White Collar
“Blue Collar, White Collar, Pink Collar” is the history of work clothes. The items include both men and women’s garments, and represent numerous different types of labor, from mill work, to nursing, office work, and even baseball.
This program is affiliated with “Connecticut at Work,” an initiative created by Connecticut Humanities that explores the past, present, and future of work life in Connecticut.
