Switchboards to Selfies – A Look Back at How We Connect

November 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The need to communicate is central to our identity as human beings; only the technology has changed over time. From quills to typewriters, from switchboards to smartphones, from handwritten letters to Facebook, as our communication technology changes, so do our messages. Exchanging ideas has never been faster or easier, but can we even hear each other through all the noise? This exhibit explores how Renton is a unique part of a national and global story. Join us on November 29, 5:30-7 pm to celebrate the opening of this exhibit with the University of Washington Museology Graduate students who made it a reality. Light refreshments will be served.
