Exhibit Sneak Peek at Tucson Desert Art Museum


Join us for a SNEAK PEEK of these two outstanding exhibits:

Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964
“Bittersweet Harvest,” a bilingual (English/Spanish) exhibition from the Smithsonian, explores the little-known history of the Bracero program; the largest guest worker program in U.S history. Between 1942 and 1964, millions of Mexican men came to the United States on short-term labor contracts. Both bitter and sweet, the Bracero experience tells a story of exploitation but also of opportunity.

The Dirty Thirties: New Deal Photography Frames the Migrants’ Stories
“The Dirty Thirties” follows the journeys of migrants fleeing the Dust Bowl, drought, and economic difficulties during the 1930s for Arizona and California. The exhibit includes rarely exhibited works by renowned photographers, Dorothea Lange, Arthur Rothstein and Russell Lee.

Local musician, Ted Warmbrand, will set the stage for the exhibits, singing about the Dust Bowl and times of troubles in the agricultural fields.

Light refreshments will be available.
