WOONSOCKET – The Museum of Work & Culture, 42 South Main St., will present its 2021 Labor Day Celebration, with both virtual and in-person events for a variety of audiences Friday and Saturday, Sept. 3-4.

The Smithsonian and the United States Patent and Trademark Office present “Picturing Women Inventors,” a poster exhibition that explores the inventions of 19 highly accomplished American women. Astronauts, computer pioneers, and businesswomen join athletes, engineers, and even teenagers in this remarkable group of inventors. The posters will be on view at the museum Sept. 1 through Oct. 30.

Also on display within this exhibition will be Rhode Island Women Create, a snapshot of the historical accomplishments of Rhode Island women in the arts and sciences, using objects drawn from the Rhode Island Historical Society’s collections.

“Slatersville: America’s First Mill Village,” directed by Christian de Rezendes, will be screened at the Museum on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 3 and 4, at 1:30 p.m. “Slatersville” will premiere on Rhode Island PBS in the fall of 2022. While the MoWC has hosted previous screenings virtually, this in-person event will combine two previously screened pieces, leading up to a newly edited piece. Admission is free. Reservations are encouraged. RSVP at mowc@rihs.org. Seating is limited to 45.
