Serigrafía

AUDIENCE: Adult, Teens

RENTAL FEE: RETIRED

SIZE: 120 linear feet

SECURITY: High

This remarkable assemblage of silkscreen prints represents the best in visual communication and artistry from California’s Latino/a printmaking community. Spanning the decades from the 1970s to topics of concern today, Serigrafía offers a strong set of iconic prints that instantly convey powerful messages with bold images and sparse, but impactful text.

Ranging from political and economic to social and cultural, the themes in these prints tackle issues, head on, from the personal to the global. Print topics include economic justice, agricultural boycotts, the Occupy Movement, imperialism, human rights, civil liberties, solidarity movements, and cultural celebrations.

The prints in this exhibit represent topics of concern to Latino/a communities, and all Californians, and were made by Latino/a artists. The works were carefully selected by a group of co-curators with historical expertise and first-hand printmaking experience, including:

  • Tony Carranza, Art Director / TUMIS
