We Mean to Make Things Over: A History of May Day

May Day

CCSF Exhibitions is proud to host the show We Mean to Make Things Over: A History of May Day from May 1 (May Day) through September 2 (Labor Day), 2024. This exhibit features the graphic work of renowned Bay Area artist Jos Sances, who created these scratchboard drawings for the 2022 award-winning documentary video of the same name by Fred Glass. The half-hour documentary will be screened continuously as part of the exhibit, and historical May Day art–on loan from the San Francisco State University Labor Archives and Research Center–will displayed, as well

Jos Sances is a printmaker and muralist whose work has been exhibited internationally; local examples of his work include murals at the A’s stadium and at the 16th Street BART Station. Fred Glass is a filmmaker, author, and recently retired professor who taught City College students in the Labor & Community Studies Department for thirty-five years; his videos have been shown on California PBS stations, in museum exhibits, and in union halls.
