EXHIBIT: Love’s Labour’s Lost: The hidden cost of bringing paradise to America’s kitchen table
September 10, 2018 - January 25, 2019

Location:

Location: 
The Claremont Colleges Library
800 N. Dartmouth Avenue
Claremont, CA 91711

Love’s Labour’s Lost explores the intriguing, often forgotten story of those who toiled to build California’s citrus empire. The carefully crafted image of California as a place of beauty, abundance and well-being – with the orange as its symbol – was made possible only by a largely invisible workforce. Essential, massive, diverse and skilled, these workers propelled the California orange’s journey from seed to table and, in the process, created California’s second gold rush.

This exhibition highlights materials from our new keystone collection, the David Boulé California Orange Collection. Mr. Boulé, a keen collector and author of The Orange and the Dream of California, donated his collection of citrus industry archives and artifacts to The Claremont Colleges Library in 2017.
