Career Waitresses: Rethinking Work & Identity Walkthrough at City Hall San Francisco – Hosted by LaborFest
Wednesday, July 13, 2005 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm at City Hall- San Francisco Lower Level
San Francisco, CA (July 6, 2005) – On Wednesday, July 13, 2005, Candacy Taylor will conduct a walkthrough of her photo exhibition, Career Waitresses: Rethinking Work & Identity. Taylor is a cultural critic, writer, and visual artist who received her masters from the California College for the Arts in the Visual Criticism program in 2002. For this project, she traveled over 5,000 miles throughout America to document career waitresses aged 50 – 84 who have been working in the same restaurant for up to 55 years and have become respected, trusted, and loved by their local communities.
Career Waitresses is partially funded by the California Council for the Humanities, fiscally sponsored by the Institute on Aging and Talking Eyes Media. The project will be archived at the San Francisco Labor Archives and Research Center. The photos from the project will hang in City Hall until July 22nd. Additionally, Weekend America, a radio show based out of Los Angeles, is featuring a series profiling the waitresses interviewed for this project. The radio show is archived at http://www.weekenedamerica.org under “Counter Culture.”
The public is invited to attend this event. Admission is free. Please RSVP to Candacy Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
