The art colony of Sisak Ironworks was organized in the period from 1971 to 1990. In total, 178 artists took part in it, creating 686 works of art, primarily paintings and sculptures, reliefs, drawings, objects and photographs. Today, some thirty sculptures can be seen in the plant's workers' village. In the days of the colony, works of art would be bought and presented to meritorious workers as a reward. 1,172 works of art were bought and presented as gifts. In those days, the ironworks employed some 15,000 workers. Today, the plant is owned by a U.S. company and has only 1,000 employees. The today's treatment of the workers' cultural heritages illustrates the modern treatment of workers and work in general.
