"On Equal Terms: A Mixed-Media Installation by Susan Eisenberg" addresses the cost of gender barriers in any occupation -- and what it means to treat all individuals on equal terms. Rooted in a political and cultural context, the mixed-media art exhibition explores and celebrates the experiences of women in the building and construction industry, especially the pioneering women who joined the skilled trades in the late 1970's and who have left their signatures on the nation's skyline.

Susan Eisenberg, an artist, poet, activist, Brandeis University scholar and master electrician, interviewed more than 30 other women in the trades -- including ironworkers, electricians, painters, plumbers and carpenters -- about their experiences. Her installation reflects these candid conversations.

"On Equal Terms" demonstrates the successful intersection of work and family life for tradeswomen -- and aptly enough, the closing reception is planned in honor of Mother's Day and the millions of working mothers across the nation. Speakers for the reception include Susan Eisenberg and Joe Davis, international representative of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
