Poster has a dark blue and light blue background. The upper left corner has an image of a woman and young child in blue clothing. In the fore front is a woman wearing a bright green shirt using a black sewing machine. On the right is a poem in light blue text. The poem reads, "she sews in a sweatshop still dreaming of gold mountains/ reliving her past through holiday rituals/ paiently waiting for her house in the suburbs/ helplessly I watch the years roll by/ on the horizon no houses in sight just mountains made of brass and sweat. (c) Nancy Hom 1977." "Gold Mountain" was the Chinese immigrant term for America. This was made as part of a women's silkscreen project organized by Stephanie Lowe, where an artist was paired up with a poet. An exhibition at the Chinese Culture Center displayed the fruit of two such projects. [LMC]
