DON'T MISS THE special exhibit crafted by the Boilermaker History Preservation Department (BHPD). Located in the Milano Ballroom, the exhibit features photo essays mounted on aluminum walls that were custom built by BHPD for the convention. The visual displays celebrate the tools, the craft, and the people of the elite Boilermaker trade. Included in the exhibit is a 7-foot-tall aluminum statue of a Boilermaker in the process of riveting. Scores of photos capture Boilermakers at work in various industries. Custom benches are located throughout the exhibit space, allowing viewers a place to relax and contemplate the exhibit elements.
The exhibit opens daily one hour before the convention convenes and closes at 5:00 each evening.
