My Labor Your Culture works are informed by the unrecognized workers in our midst that contribute so much to society. Many are newcomers to this country - usually referred to as immigrant or migrant workers. They often embrace the difficulties of the new setting and develop a motivating force and inspiration to continue.  The works in the show examine the idea of the ongoing eternal presence of the worker to sustain and promote living.
