The  Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center provides leadership which supports union and community activists create public art in their honor.

The  New Bedford mural was created in October 2001 by Dan Devenny, noted muralist from Belfast, Ireland. It is located near the corner of Sixth and Spring Streets. Funding came from the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities, the UMass Dartmouth Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center, the Community Building Mini-grants Program, the company and workers of Riverside Clothing and many labor unions and individuals. Thanks to the many volunteers and our state senator.
