Preview Reception and "Rosie the Riveter" Performance
May 18, 2023
Preview Reception at MacArthur Museum 5-6:30 p.m. (Tickets Required)
"Rosie the Riveter" at Choctaw Building 7-8:30 p.m. (Free Admission)
Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy tells the inspiring story of the Home Front during World War II, an effort that produced tanks, planes, ships and guns with staggering speed and unparalleled energy. This surge in productivity not only brought the country out of depression, but also created mighty military forces, supplies the Allies abroad and opened new doors of opportunity and social change for Americans.
Join us for a special preview of this traveling exhibit and see how Americans responded to the call to action, transforming the United States from an isolationist nation still reeling from the Great Depression into the world's greatest industrial power.
Tickets for this fundraising event are $125 per person and include admission to the preview reception and reserved seating afterward for a living history presentation by Kelly O'Connell Brengelman as "Rosie the Riveter". Proceeds support the museum's educational programming.
To purchase tickets please call the museum at 501.376.4602. All contributions are tax deductible.
