The Way We Worked Exhibit

Over a six-week period this fall, Cedar Key was home to a traveling Smithsonian Institute exhibit, The Way We Worked, which explores how work became a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and environments over the past 150 years. Other exhibits sponsored by community organizations chronicled the unique history of Cedar Key and its ties with the coast. The Cedar Key Aquaculture Association hosted the UF exhibit, Water: Discovering and Sharing Solutions, which showcases Cedar Key’s newest way to work—clam farming. Over 1,500 visitors and numerous school groups visited this exhibit and learned about an environmentally-friendly industry that provides food, jobs, and ecosystem services to the local area.
