The BMI’s first-ever outdoor exhibition featured women at work at Bethlehem Steel’s Sparrows Point plant.
The Baltimore Museum of Industry opened this exhibition outside of the museum to allow for social distancing and open-air exploration during COVID-19. The exhibition, titled Women of Steel, hung on the museum’s fence along Key Highway in South Baltimore and was free of charge to view. This was the BMI’s first outdoor exhibition.
Hear the voices of Women of Steel in the audio companion to the outdoor exhibition. Featuring oral history excerpts from the Mill Stories documentary as well as a recording of the exhibition script, this audio guide is accessible from your mobile device on-site or from the comfort of your own home.
