American artists from throughout the nation and Canada explore the
theme of labor through painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital
art, photography, and poetry. From traditional tribal values to
contemporary wage labor to Native involvement in unions and the
labor movement, "Frybread and Roses" examines work from
a Native perspective.
