The Museum proudly opens the exhibit Workers: Books & Photographs by Eugene Glickman on Sunday, May 1st, 2016 at 1PM.
Workers: Books & Photographs is a unique display that showcases a special, personal collection that has been acquired by Eugene Glickman, Professor Emeritus of Music at Nassau Community College and Director of the Harmonic Insurgence Choir.
Ever since attending the High School of Music and Art in Manhattan in the late 1940s and early 1950s and despite his major interest in music, Professo Glickman cultivated a love of the visual arts. "As a worker myself," he noted, "I've always been interested in my fellow workers. During my life, I've collected a lot of books of art and photography, many of them having to do with work. Since this subject matter appears in public all too rarely, I'm especially happy to offer my collection to the Museum to display."
The exhibit features books and photographs from many eras that illustrate workers. Included is photography of Lewis Hine, Builder Levy and Sabastiao Salgado.
The program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Passaic County Cultural and Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
Workers: Books & Photographs will be on view through August 27, 2016.
