Video screening, East Side Freedom Library, St. Paul, Aug 2, 1 PM
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the East Side Freedom Library (ESFL) are hosting a screening of the documentary, Who Built Our Capitol?, about the men and women who constructed the Minnesota statehouse. Randy Croce and John Sielaff, members of the research team, will be present to talk about the project and answer questions.
The screening will be on Sunday, August 2 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM at the East Side Freedom Library, 1105 Greenbrier Street (near Maryland and Payne Avenues), St. Paul, MN 55106. The event is free and open to the public.
Some descendant of the workers who participated in the original construction of the Minnesota State Capitol will be attending the showing and discussion. Any other descendants of the builders are encouraged to attend, as well as anyone who has worked on the building's restoration or is simply interested in the background of this Minnesota icon. The documentary is part of the project sponsored by the Labor Education Service at the University of Minnesota. For a wealth of information on the project, go to www.whobuiltourcapitol.org
