An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until October 22, 2018
Organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, the exhibition features a selection of European and American prints and photographs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries that depict scenes of workers and the working class in European and American life.
Included in the exhibition are works by Jean Charlot, John Stuart Curry, Carl Hall, Darius Kinsey, Lewis Hines, Marion Post Wolcott, and Myra Albert Wiggins, among others.
The works were generated at a time of enormous economic, political, and social upheaval – a time period that included two world wars, the industrial revolution, worldwide economic collapse, and large scale immigration to the United States. Socialist and capitalist ideas were very much in debate in the Western world during this time and concern for how these changes impacted the working classes was a subject of significant artistic output.
