A new touch screen installed in front of the Maine Labor Mural, which hangs in the Cultural Building and is now owned by the Maine State Museum, invites visitors to explore Maine’s rich labor history, as depicted by artist Judy Taylor in the mural’s eleven panels. Visitors can tap an icon for any of the panels to discover richly illustrated and layered historical narratives about Maine’s labor history, including more than 160 images of related objects, photographs, and documents. Artist Judy Taylor also reflects on the development and meaning of her work in a series of video interviews.
