The Museum of History and Art in Ontario presents Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program 1942-1964, on view AUGUST 25 – OCTOBER 30.

This is a multi-faceted exhibition about the largest guest worker program in United States history including both the exploitation and opportunity it brought to millions of Mexican nationals, examined through powerful photographs by Leonard Nadel, explanatory text, and audio excerpts from bracero oral histories.

Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964, was developed by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. This exhibition received Federal support from the Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center. The Smithsonian Community Grant program, funded by MetLife Foundation, is a proud sponsor of these public programs.
