At Work: The Art of California Labor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A powerful examination of California labor history since the turn of the twentieth century.
At Work is a compilation of images that provides heady insight into one of the most fundamental components of our daily lives and shows how our collective identity has evolved over time. This visual journey follows early events and conditions in California Labor, from the rise of statewide organized labor to the changing demographics of the wartime workforce; from the zenith of the California Labor School to the farm workers' movement; from the disenfranchisement of workers in the service economy to the potent effects of globalization felt at the end of the twentieth century.

Book News Annotation:

Johnson (curator and professor of art, San Francisco State U.) surveys California artwork produced over the past century related to the California labor movement. Social and artistic issues are discussed and linked, and the range of styles and works examined is diverse. Paintings, photographs, and murals are reproduced in 111 plates.
