In our latest online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Alethea Rockwell, associate educator for Adult and Academic Programs, takes a close look at Honoré Sharrer’s Workers and Paintings, which reflects how we, the viewers, remake the meaning of artworks for our own realities and moments in time.

Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
