Frontline and Essential Workers Face the Beast exhibit is currently on view at the American Labor Museum. The exhibit features paintings of frontline and essential workers by New York contemporary artist Steve Derrick. Mr. Derrick used photos of frontline workers posted on social media to paint portraits. He sent the completed portraits to the workers he portrayed as a way to thank them for their labor during these trying times.
Millions of men and women worldwide are part of the essential workforce on the frontline of the COVID19 pandemic.
This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Passaic County Cultural and Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
Frontline and Essential Workers Face the Beast is on view at the Museum through Saturday, August 21st, 2021. The Museum is open to on-site visitors Wed.-Sat. 1-4PM and by appointment. Virtual (ZOOM) tours are available by appointment.
