“The Sweat of Their Face: Portraying American Workers”

November 3, 2017 at 11:30 am - November 30, 2017 at 7:00 pm

What does a worker look like? This exhibit offers 81 answers—paintings, sculptures, and videos with moving and inspiring depictions of mostly anonymous employees. From Norman Rockwell’s kindly-looking coal miner to Gordon Parks’s pointed 1942 photo of an African-Amer­ican “charwoman” in front of a US flag, these pieces add up to a statement about the meaning of labor.
