EXHIBIT: Woven Together

WOVEN TOGETHER: Marion Manufacturing and McDowell County
ON EXHIBIT: June 4-August 3, 2012

Woven Together: Marion Manufacturing and McDowell County traces the history of this foothills textile mill and highlights its impact on the surrounding community. Over 50 images tell the story of its founding, its expansion, the strike of 1929, the prosperous and idyllic post-war years, and the futile struggle to compete against cheap textile imports in the 1980s and 1990s. Nearly half of the exhibit is devoted to the 1929 strike which resulted in six union members being killed by sheriff's deputies in a dramatic clash at the mill gate. It was an event that made headlines all over the country, moved Woody Guthrie to write two songs about it, and inspired Sinclair Lewis to chronicle the events in East Marion in Cheap and Contented Labor.
