How do we visualize labor? How can art contribute to, as well as challenge, our understanding of labor? A Day’s Work invites viewers to examine our expectations about who engages in particular types of work and what kinds of jobs are valued and by whom. It also encourages us to question labor’s mental, physical, social, political, and economic effects.

Support for Sheldon Statewide is provided by Farmers Mutual Insurance Company of Nebraska, Rhonda Seacrest, and Sheldon Art Association.
