The Art of Modern Manufacturing

When you think of modern manufacturing, what words pop into your head? If “picturesque” doesn’t, you probably aren’t alone.

Through our work on our Industry 4.0 case studies, we were fortunate enough to get to look around at numerous facilities in every corner of the state. During these travels, we found that the beauty of the manufacturing industry all too often goes unnoticed, which led us to produce this art gallery.

Take a self-guided, virtual tour through this unique National Manufacturing Month art exhibit where you will see modern manufacturing in a whole new light. The Art of Modern Manufacturing: Views through a different lens is a month-long exhibit featuring the work of Indiana-based photographer Michael Durr. Mr. Durr traveled to more than 50 manufacturers statewide to photograph modern manufacturing and the people driving Indiana successfully toward an Industry 4.0 economy. Sixteen of those photos are on display here and each has a unique story behind it.

Journey through the implementation of Industry 4.0 technology via our audio tour of The Art of Modern Manufacturing, an ode to the transformation of the Indiana advanced manufacturing and logistics (AML) landscape.
