The Milton Rogovin Traveling Photography Exhibit
From the series "Working People", employee of Shenango Ingot Molds at home (1976-87).
This exhibit is a collaborative effort between the Rogovin family and Syracuse Cultural Workers (SCW). While Milton Rogovin has had exhibitions at The Getty Museum and other leading art institutions, we believe that Milton's images should seen and available at the grassroots level!
This traveling exhibit is made up of high quality reproductions so that centers and public facilities that do not have fine art insurance will be able to exhibit Milton's social documentary photographs for the benefit of their larger communities.
This special exhibit is made up of 50 photographs that come ready to hang with descriptive text panels. Ideal for union halls, community centers, libraries, schools, colleges and non-traditional gallery spaces.
SET 1: 25 photographs from the "Family of Miners" and the "Working People" series, including miners from Appalachia, Mexico, Cuba, Zimbabwe, and Scotland. Included are women miners as well as women working in steel mills and foundries. Some of the workers are photographed at home with family.
