137 - Walters Workers United
/

Art and Labor is joined by members of the union-to-be of Baltimore’s Walters Art Museum, the Walters Workers United! OK and Lucia interview Ruby, Garrett, and Allison (who we unfortunately lost connection with!) about their path towards worker organization- from your standard total mismanagement of COVID in 2020 to toxic fumes passing staff out; dealing with the Walter’s particularly unique private/public state of matter, and what that means for accountability (xXx spoiler alert xXx: there’s a lack of it). The bright side of the bullshit? Secret slacks, not realizing you had a coworker ready for your trust fall, and as always, teachers’ unions!

Episode 52 – The Museum is for Everypony

Our rage is burning like the rainforest, but our brains are melting as fast as the ice caps, and when the museum wants us to Warm Up, we burst. Even though we aren’t on the International Council of Museums we throw our hats into the definition debate and decide…they should belong to everypony.
