Synopsis: What does it mean to turn the public library or museum into a civic forum? Made in Newark describes a turbulent industrial city at the dawn of the twentieth century and the ways it inspired the library's outspoken director, John Cotton Dana, to collaborate with industrialists, social workers, educators, and New Women.

This is the story of experimental exhibitions in the library and the founding of the Newark Museum Associationùa project in which cultural literacy was intertwined with civics and consumption. Local artisans demonstrated crafts, connecting the cultural institution to the department store, school, and factory, all of which invoked the ideal of municipal patriotism. Today, as cultural institutions reappraise their relevance, Made in Newark explores precedents for contemporary debates over the ways the library and museum engage communities, define heritage in a multicultural era, and add value to the economy.

From the Inside Flap: "Made in Newark" describes a changing industrial city at the dawn of the twentieth century, when the city's outspoken library director, John Cotton Dana, collaborated with industrialists, social workers, and New Women to reconfigure a cultural institution for a city in flux. This is the story of experimental library exhibitions and the founding of the Newark Museum Association-a project in which cultural literacy was intertwined with lessons in civics and consumption. It explores precedents for contemporary debates over the ways the library and museum engage communities, define heritage in a multicultural era, and add value to the economy.
