workin' class art: call for artists!

My friend Zoeann is working on a poster project for a show at the Bread and Roses Gallery in NYC. She needs 45 posters in the next two weeks, and you are invited to participate, and make a poster!

Here is a description of the project:

The show will be up in April. The posters are supposed to depict what workers look like today. So often labor art is about white men in factories. As you know the labor movement today looks quite different...

We are looking for posters depicting workers today. 5 posters will be reproduced and mass distributed around the country. The posters need to be 19" x25" and done in the next two weeks. You could make a poster about anything, garment workers, janitors, bus drivers, garbage removal workers, secretaries, nurses, migrant fruit pickers and so on. The idea is to depict modern day jobs in the context of the labor movement.

If yr interested, start making a poster! You can contact me at katewadkins@gmail.com and I can definitely get you in touch with Zoeann.

LOVE, KW
