The exhibit, "The History of Maine Labor Mural," by Judy Taylor will be mounted from April 22, 2012 through May 6, 2012 within the LHC bilingual exhibit, "Short pay! All out!" on the 6th floor of the Everett Mill, 15 Union Street, Lawrence.

"The History of Maine Labor Mural" brings to Lawrence a set of images that now stands at the forefront of the discussion of 20th and 21st century public art and visual culture. In March 2011, the mural was removed from the lobby of the Maine Department of Labor at the order of Governor Paul LePage. The artist and the curator Nancy Nesvet produced life-size reproductions of the eleven panels of the mural for this traveling exhibit. The themes depicted in the mural and the exhibit texts are closely related to the 1912 textile strike in Lawrence as well as later labor struggles.

Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 1:00 p.m.
