The Panama Canal: Then And Now
Thursday, October 30, 2014
2014 marks the centennial of the opening of one of the seven wonders of the modern world: The Panama Canal. It remains one of those wonders and is about to become more important. With that in mind, The Mint Museum is opening a new exhibit: Connecting the World: The Panama Canal at 100, featuring works of art documenting the canal’s construction and its role in global trade. We get a preview and talk with the U.S. Ambassador to Panama.
