Exhibition Review:
The industrial revolution is considered by many as one of the foundations of the U.S. emergence as a world power. Similarly, many predict that the rapid pace these facilities and jobs are leaving the US are similarly jeopardizing this country's position and standing in the world community. As we see more and more US manufacturing facilities close taking these jobs overseas, we are sadly losing a way of life . . . a way of life that brought the emergence and sustainability of the middle class.Often, the work was hard and the hours long but the there was always hope amidst despair and pride that an honest day's work for an honest day's pay.The images portrayed in Death of a Revolution explores a long abandoned manufacturing facility in Milwaukee and attempts to capture scenes of the daily life still evident in this factory. Even though the doors closed many years ago, there remain glimpses of a life and maybe an era gone by.
