Text on poster:

Generations of men, women, and children paraded through the gates of textile mills to toil for the necessities of life. With "the constant crash of machinery in their ears and the moist, lint-laden air in their lungs", their cries for fresh air and "God's glorious sunshine" could be heard with agonizing regularity. The powerful image of Fasanella's "Red Sky" evokes the courage of workers in today's mills, factories, construction sites, offices and schoolrooms, who often endure pain and injury as they labor to create the wealth and prosperity of their communities.
