“Made in USA” will be the topic of the June special exhibit at Allison-Antrim Museum, 365 South Ridge Ave. The sundry items date from the early 20th century until the present.

Anything marked “Made in the USA” is becoming highly collectible.  With “global” economy overtaking the nationalist economy for the past couple decades, fewer and fewer items are marked “USA.”  Cheap overseas labor has made it more profitable for American companies to have their previously US-made products made in foreign countries, especially China.  

This thought-provoking exhibit will shed light on the changing economy and its effects on the society.  Or was it our US culture, and immediate gratification wants that actually changed the American economy?

Allison-Antrim Museum will be open Sunday, June 13 from 1 to 4 p.m. and  weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from noon to 4 p.m., and on Wednesday 1 to 5 p.m.
