Traveling with migrant workers as the fruit and harvest season moves from the Mexican border to Washington state, the exhibition sheds light on the basic questions: How much do we know about the lives of the people who feed us? Where do they live? How does it feel to do some of the hardest repetitive labor imaginable? And, what answers do farm workers themselves have to end their poverty and endless migration?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering this exhibit in an online format.
