Labor Movement Posters Exhibit




The Bridgewater Public Library will feature an exhibition of international labor movement posters from Stephen Lewis’ collection (https://www.facebook.com/Lewisposters) in the Flora T. Little Gallery. The exhibition will be on display through May and June.

The posters in this exhibition are from a collection of more than 4,500 of Stephen Lewis, a long-time activist in the labor movement and the former Treasurer of his union. Stephen has exhibited at a number of public libraries in Massachusetts, two of the state Heritage parks and at Boston City Hall. Lewis has presented at the annual conference of the National Council on Public History and on local cable television programs.

According to Lewis, the posters/photos were contributed by friends, collected at conferences, visits to some of the organizations, and from connections made through the internet.

The Flora T. Little Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours: Monday-Wednesday 9a.m.-8p.m.; Thursday 10a.m.-5p.m., Friday-Saturday 10a.m.-2p.m. Parking is available in back of the library.
