    Description

    The owner of one of these paintings, “The Corner Butcher,” has offered the painting for sale, and the Smithsonian Museum is eager to receive it for its permanent collection as a tribute to Fasanella and the American labor movement.

    Now we must raise the funds to purchase “The Corner Butcher” which depicts a union craftsman in his shop proudly displaying his union shop card.

    The centennial celebrations are supported by the Labor Heritage Foundation and promoted by Public Domain, an organization created to purchase Fasanella’s paintings from collectors and donate them to museums and public institutions. Fasanella often said,
    “I didn’t paint my paintings to hang in some rich guy’s living room. My paintings are about working people, for working people, and they shouldn’t be hidden away.”
