Mars Inc. plans to sponsor the American Business Exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in 2015, featuring the role of business and innovation in the U.S. from the mid-1700s to present.
Mars supports the “American Enterprise” section, which will be located in the Mars Hall of American Business in recognition of the company’s $5 million contribution. This exhibition will tell the story of the nation’s business, centering on themes of opportunity, innovation, competition and the search for common good in the American marketplace.
Objects such as John Deere’s plow, Eli Whitney’s cotton gin, Barbara McClintock’s microscope and Stanley Cohen’s recombinant DNA research notebook will show development in American agriculture from machines that increased productivity to science that gave insight to the genetic structure of plants. The tourist site will also feature personal and family stories, featuring biographies of innovators and entrepreneurs.
