In the Fields of the North/En los Campos del Norte

In the Fields of the North/En los Campos del Norte is a powerful photographic exhibit about the lives of migrant farm laborers, now on display at the San Joaquin County Historical Museum. Through a series of evocative photographs by David Bacon and supplemented by artifacts from the Museum’s collection, this exhibit highlights the lives of farm workers as they travel from the Mexican border north to the state of Washington, harvesting fruits and vegetables throughout the growing season. Thanks to the generous support of El Concilio and the Community Foundation of San Joaquin, this exhibit will be on display until April 10th.

In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte sheds light on some basic questions: How much do we know about the lives of the people who feed us? Where do they live? How does it feel to do some of the hardest repetitive labor imaginable? And, what answers do farm workers themselves have to end their poverty and endless migration?

In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte features the works of David Bacon; is produced in partnership with the California Rural Legal Assistance, the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, and History San José; and is touring the U.S. through Exhibit Envoy.

Adults, $7.00; Seniors & Military, $6; Youth (6-17), $5:00; Kids ages 0-5 and Members are free. Parking at Micke Grove Park: $6.00.
