In February 2014 I had the privilege to work cataloging some marvelous posters from the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts from their extensive archive.
“Within our collection, we have cataloged more than 4,000 posters. This important collection will become one of the most important collections of Latino / Chicano posters in the country. With this archive, the MCCLA possess an important artistic tool to educate the general public and the Latino community about its artists and their print making. The preservation of this body of work is vital to our rich Chicano and Latino cultural history, and it serves as a powerful monument not only to our culture but to the artistic talents of our proud community.”
Here are some of the highlights:
