The community is invited to the opening reception of "Remembering the Struggle," a unique art exhibit that will display both contemporary and historical artwork created in solidarity with the Watsonville cannery strikers’ efforts from 1985-1987.

At the reception visitors will have a chance to meet and mingle with contributing artists and former strikers and get a “taste of Watsonville” through local food and celebration.

The Pajaro Valley Arts Council will be hosting this exhibit from July 30 to September 21, 2008.

Viernes Cultural of Watsonville will be hosting a community celebration event to honor the former strikers, also on August 1st at 5pm at the Watsonville Downtown Plaza, with a procession from the Plaza to the Gallery at 6:30pm.
