In the summer of 2007, I responded to a Call to Artists sponsored by the Maine Arts Commission. The call was to
create an artwork depicting the " History of Labor in the State of Maine". After a reviewing process, I was selected to do
the commission. Along the way, I met some wonderful, and dedicated people. I also got an excellent education in
Maine History.
Below, is the 11 panel mural that was painted on 4 x 8 sheets of specially prepared MDO board. The panels were
applied to adjoining walls in the Dept. of Labor reception area. In total, the mural measures 36 feet in length, and is
nearly 8 feet tall.
After being removed in 2011, the mural has found a home in the Maine State Museum, where all Mainers can view it
free of charge.
