Art and cultural attitudes

I think it's unfortunate how artistic representations of manufacturing have changed, but they reflect cultural attitudes, not necessarily the reality of manufacturing.

For a very impressive manufacturing facility, both inside and out, look at Signicast Corporation's Hartford, Wisconsin facility.  There is a virtual tour available here.

Manufacturing doesn't have to be dirty, dangerous, or dehumanizing.  The whole purpose of manufacturing, as Rob points out, is to elevate our standard of living.

Great point, Naperlou. there probably a good chance that many of these artisits have not spent much time in factories. Except maybe Diego Rivera.

Rob, these are someinteresting views of the factory.  Actual factories are either very impresive or somewhat blase.  The truth is often not as dramatic as artists make it out to be.  Having been in very large factories and very small ones, it is interesting that, in general, one rarely has such a grand view of the whole factory floor.
