On Saturday, while at the San José History Park, D. and I stopped by the Arbuckle Gallery to see the current exhibit "In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte," chronicling the lives of contemporary migrant farm workers. Here are some of the pics I took while there (see also pics of the nearby Viet Museum here).
An introduction to the exhibit.
A look at one of the galleries.
A United Farm Workers flag, with political buttons (including ones that say No Grapes; No Uvas; Uvas No; The Wrath of Grapes; Boycott Dole; Boycott Gallo; Boycott Non-Union Grapes; Boycott Lettuce; Boycott Scab Lettuce; Don't Buy Red Coach Lettuce; No Lettuce Unless It's Union Label; Cada Trabajador Es Un Organizador; Viva La Huelga; Como Siempre; Queremos Un Contracto; We Want A Contract; Vote UFW; Unidos Ganaremos; No Violencia Es Neustra Fuerza; Support UFW Workers Compensation; Support Farm Workers; Press; Security).
A display of paper hand silhouettes with thoughts and observations written on them by viewers of the exhibit.
Don't take food for granted.
Food! The world have food!
Pencils in a box, to write down one's thoughts on migrant farm workers after viewing the exhibit.
