Michelle Miller is our guide through a gallery of images of everyday Americans, including an exhibition of people at work (This story was originally aired on April 15, 2018): Among the statesmen and presidents at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., there's now a sandwich maker, a seamstress, and a grape picker. "American portraiture has been about the elite, where the wealthy subject was able to hire an artist," said Dorothy Moss, co-curator of the exhibition "The Sweat of Their Face: Portraying American Workers." "So you wanted to open it up?" asked Miller. "Oh, definitely, yes.
