Portraits and Stories of the Pomona Day Laborers
Opening Reception
Friday July 17
6-11pm
Hotei Gallery and Art Center
1445 W. Morse Ave.

As a volunteer at a Clairmont California day labor center, Amy Glasser got to know the undocumented workers, several with whom she collaborated on art projects. For her Senior class project this past year, Amy drew portraits of nine of the workers, and created biographical sketches, all of which will be presented locally. Included in the show will be another of her art pieces, a weaver’s loom, a landscape piece consisting of objects from nature and other findings.

“Me llamo Azel. Nanci en México. Me crei estudiano y trabajando. desde los siete años de edad trabajaba haciendo tabiques…” - “My name is Azel. I was born in Mexico. I grew up studying and working. Since I was seven years old I worked making bricks…”.
