On the Battlefront and the Homefront Rentonites in the Great War May 28 – November 11, 2018 This exhibit explores the experiences of local men and women in confronting international war for the first time. For people who had never thought of themselves as part of a global community, WWI crystallized and clarified their beliefs about citizenship and its duties, national identity, and patriotism in ways that changed Renton forever. Switchboards to Selfies A Look Back at How We Connect November 20, 2018 – April 27, 2019 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 hand- written 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.
