The Museum proudly opens the exhibit Waterfront Longshoremen:  Original Photography by Frank Silva on Sunday, September 2nd, 2018 at 1PM.

Waterfront Longshoremen:  Original Photography is an exhbit of black-and-white prints that focus on San Francisco and Oakland, California waterfront workers during the decade 1978 to 1988, a time marked by the rapid change to containerization.

Frank Silva took up photography as a high school student.  After serving in the US Navy, he began working on the Oakland waterfront in 1965.  He joined the Waterfront Writers and Artists, a group of International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) members in 1978.  Mr. Silva collaborated on the production of Longshoremen at Work (1994), a film documenting the history of the ILWU in the San Francisco and Oakland area from 1969 to 1994.  He has exhibited his photographs of longshoremen and recently published a book of his photographs entitled Waterfront:  Longshoremen in the Era of American Labor.

This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Passaic County Cultural and Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Waterfront Longshoremen:  Original Photography exhibit by Frank Silva is on view at the Museum through December 31st, 2018.
