Colorado artist Don Coen’s The Migrant Series is a magnificent group of 15 large-scale realistic portraits of migrant farm workers. The series was painted between 1992 and 2012 and seeks to, as Coen describes it, “raise the awareness of the average American to this overlooked, perhaps even invisible, yet vital part of our society.” He intends it as a “humble expression of gratitude” for America’s migrant workers.
