Sheet Metal Workers History Mural
Acrylic on canvas, 4.5' x 28'
This mural by Kathleen Farrell is located in the headquarters of the Sheet Metal Workers International Association in Washington D.C. Farrell employs a composite of images drawn from photographs to tell a history of the trade union in scenes of work and organizing. An abstract underpainting increases its power and clarity.
