Photo Gallery: DOL Elevator Poster Displays in DOL Regional Offices
(January 19, 2012)
- The General Services Administration, the 'landlord' for the federal government, rotates art displays through the stunning lobby of the architectural gem designed by renowned architect Thom Mayne. A series of DOL's Elevator Posters was the featured exhibit recently.
- Krister Engdahl, who works with organizations providing job training opportunities to farm workers, youth and other job seekers, pauses for a photo between posters featuring Cesar Chavez and Frances Perkins.
- A selection of posters lines the central wall of the lobby. Former San Francisco county supervisor and gay rights activist Harvey Milk is featured in the poster second from the right.
- A view of the sun-filled lobby that serves as an art gallery for the 1800 federal employees who work in the building and the building's many visitors. Tour groups and architectural students regularly come to see the building's design and 'green' features.
- Visitors and employees pass the posters and the building's video information wall coming in and out the main entrance.
- Art and architecture come together in lobby.
- When the next art exhibit is displayed, the framed posters will find new a home in one of the lobbies on the upper floors in the 18-story tower.
