The graduate students of the Public History Program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the UNLV University Libraries have teamed up to present an exhibit that captures the important history of one of Las Vegas’ most recognizable unions, Local Culinary Union 226. “Line in the Sand: The People, Power and Progress of the Culinary Union” is open to the public and will be on display from Dec. 5, 2014, through April 1, 2015, on the first floor of UNLV’s Lied Library.
This dynamic exhibit explores the tenacious and determined history between the Culinary Workers Union, Local 226 and the City of Las Vegas. Founded in 1935, the Culinary Union has more than 55,000 members and is the largest union in Nevada.
“Line in the Sand” is presented in cooperation with the Culinary Union, the Bartenders Union, UNLV University Libraries, the UNLV College of Liberal Arts, the Nevada State Museum, and the Las Vegas News Bureau.
