Undocumented Heart: Oakland Day Laborers Tell their Stories is an exhibition that explores the lives of Oakland’s undocumented workers from Mexico and Central America. A large-scale outdoor exhibit highlights these day laborers’ accounts of their lives, juxtaposed against a chilling historical timeline of events in the United States, Mexico, and Central America. Photography and exhibit design by Jeff Norman. The project is a partnership with Street Level Health Project.


The day laborers–with artists Marion Coleman and Ramon Carrillo–made paintings and quilts that dramatize their journeys, sacrifice, and resilience. Explore the art below:
