The Worker's Studio is a series of nomadic collaborative art projects that brings community groups together to learn about labor rights and issues affecting immigrant workers through performance, art making and dialogue. On view are pieces from the studio, including a series of collaborative designs, activist posters, and selections from the Jornalero@App Poster Campaign, a collaboration with New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE). In 2016, artist and educator Sol Aramendi developed the Jornalero Wage Theft App in collaboration with day laborers, community organizers, artists and computer programmers, bringing fair labor standards and immigrant rights together. The LED counter chronicles the frequency of wage theft during the course of the exhibition from November 13, 2017 to March 14, 2018.
