    Work on Paper

    In recognition of the 80th anniversary of the 44-day sit-down strike at the General Motors Fisher Body Plant that began on December 30, 1936, the FIA will present prints and drawings that relate to labor, workers’ rights, and protests. Spanning the late 19th to the mid-20th century, the artists in this exhibition depict men and women at work, mostly in factory settings. Many works are from the decade of the 1930s, the era of the Great Depression, which saw many changes to labor, from the picket line to the unemployment line.
