At Work and At Play

Coyote Brought Light by Neal Ambrose-Smith


Mexican Market Place by Francisco Dosamantes
 Untitled by Ruby E. Quarterman, Silverprint

The 2019-2021 Artmobile exhibition At Work and At Play invites viewers to examine how work and play impact the quality of life for ourselves and those around us. The 17 works of art in this exhibition include etchings, lithographs, drypoint, photographic, and serigraphic prints. Images range from familiar scenes to foreign, representing experiences across cultures—within our state, our nation, and around the world. Through a “deep looking” activity with art from the exhibition, students learn about the importance of work and play in the development of community, society, culture and identity. The exhibition content enables discussions of how we contribute to society, community, and family; make meaningful connections with others, and enrich and sustain community life—through work and play.
