care:work is a new national initiative to foreground the importance of caregiving in our homes, institutions, schools, and communities.  Whether they are professionals or family members, caregivers are essential workers that are increasingly critical to our quality of life. Too often they have been invisible; care: work is delighted to collaborate with artists on this exhibition to recognize and share their importance.

Founded by Eric Siegel in 2019, care:work is now a partnership among Siegel, Curator and Producer Deborah Schwartz, and Artist Liaison Jordan Rathkopf.
