Brains and Toils: Prints of Labor and Industry from the WAM Collection

Brains and Toils: Prints of Labor and Industry from the Wichita Art Museum Collection explores ideas of labor and industry in early 20th-century America. Featuring prints of farmers, fishermen, dockworkers, and builders of all kinds, the exhibition considers both urban and rural workers and the ways in which their labor shaped all aspects of American life—from politics and the environment to the family and community.

With images of despair and heroism, boredom and excitement, mistreatment and unity, the exhibition considers the varied experiences and roles of the American worker during a time of radical change.

Featured printmakers include Claire Leighton, John Taylor Arms, Gordon Grant, Georges Schreiber, and others.
