As you examine the print there is a little girl in the middle of the print. One of the events described a little girl being trampled by the other immigrants as they ran from the border patrol. The gate is a chain link fence that signifies our over expenditure on building walls at the border that do not work and only cause consternation between the local communities on both sides of the border. Many other figures signify other extremes of the migrant cause including pregnant women. The translation is a play on words with the direct translation. But I felt it worked as the culture and the people can be described as happiness and we as a culture are always in pursuit of this unattainable object. Persecucion would translate directly to “persecution,” but I felt that a more common phrase and one used by popular culture would still be in keeping with the meaning of the artwork.<BR/><BR/>—Humberto Saenz<SPAN STYLE="font-family:'Times New Roman';font-size:12pt"><BR/></SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Humberto Saenz", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/14-G-3653.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/14-G-3653.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/14-G-3653.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/14-G-3653.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2602", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 4083, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/4083", "Disp_Access_No" : "14-G-3652", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2008", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2008", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2008", "Disp_Title" : "La Arca (The Ark)", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Humberto Saenz", "Sort_Artist" : "Saenz, Humberto", "Disp_Dimen" : "18 3/4 x 14 7/8 in.

She has extensively traveled, sharing her art in over 34 countries. She is a painter, printmaker and creator of metal masks which she uses for performance art. Her monoprint, Goddess, features a six-handed goddess on a stage, emanating mystical power. The red tone creates an emotional and powerful work. Using complementary colors, a delicate green embossment is depressed into the paper in a semi-circular design, suggesting a theatrical setting. The deity is possibly the Indian Hindu goddess Kali, destroyer of evil forces. The collaged figure of the goddess, standing on a pedestal, is surrounded by a gold background, suggesting her power and importance. Benton uses chine collé, layering red squares at the bottom of the composition on top of the ornate embossment.

Cole has been altering perceptions of household objects since the 1990s. He ingeniously transforms steam irons, ironing boards, hairdryers, and high-heeled shoes into powerful sculptures, installations, and works on paper. Mining his own African American heritage, Cole creates work that celebrates African culture and confronts viewers with the painful history of slavery in America. In Pressed Iron Blossom No. 1, Cole portrays a beautiful blossoming flower with petals of various shades of black and gray. The artist created the patterned design by pressing steam irons onto the surface of the print matrix. For Cole, steam irons evoke references not only to household goods, but also to African masks, and to the slave ships of the Middle Passage. -Dominique Adams, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Willie Cole", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/06-G-3323.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/06-G-3323.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/06-G-3323.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/06-G-3323.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2119", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 562, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/562", "Disp_Access_No" : "09-G-3481", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2006", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2006", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2006", "Disp_Title" : "Lincoln 1861-1865", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Mauricio Lasansky", "Sort_Artist" : "Lasansky, Mauricio", "Disp_Dimen" : "36 x 23 1/2 in.

In this print, she explores the theme of Sankofa—a West African word from Ghana that means “learning from the past” which is often represented through visual symbols and linked with proverbs in Akan and Asante art. Here the artist uses visual layering techniques to allude to the past, present, and future happening simultaneously, overlaid with various Asante “Adinkra” symbols. The central image of an African American girl holding a black doll derives from an early 20th century photograph which she found in an abandoned house. The layering effect, created through a sequence of 19 silkscreens, suggests parallel universes, with the image of the young girl slipping in between realities. The work also contains other kinds of symbolism: the color indigo alludes to the Middle Passage; the color red connotes life or blood; and the tree suggests life, death, rebirth, and family. -Tricia Sackor, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by Thomas Blum", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Bernice Appelin-Williams", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/14-G-3622.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/14-G-3622.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/14-G-3622.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/14-G-3622.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2884", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 5099, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/5099", "Disp_Access_No" : "15-G-3737", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2009", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2009", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2009", "Disp_Title" : "Quinceañera: Quince Años de la Lucha Zapatista (Fifteen Years of Zaptista Struggle)", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Jesus Barraza", "Sort_Artist" : "Barraza, Jesus", "Disp_Dimen" : "21 1/2 x 16 in.

I apply vivid and dynamic color, overlapping transparent color with opaque color. I combine flat space with cubical space. I merge abstraction, simplification, and realism. I juxtapose and superimpose unlikely images of realism, icons, symbols and fantasy from history and the contemporary world to foster opportunities for the bending of meaning and the warping of time and place. <BR/><BR/>In this silkscreen I combine my reinterpretation of Mount Rushmore with the May 1, 2006 national rally, "A Day without Immigrants."

May 1, 2006 was an important day in U.S. history: 10 million immigrants, activists and allies in over 200 cities from across the country chose to skip work, school, and the normal daily routine to participate in "A Day without Immigrants." A national boycott, general strikes, rallies and symbolic actions were held in order to demand basic rights for all immigrants, and to build a new multi-ethnic united civil rights movement. <BR/><BR/>As a contemporary Chicano printmaker, I note the changing demographics of this country as the Latino population increases. Our southern border is no longer just El Paso, Ju<SPAN STYLE="color:#252525">á</SPAN>rez, San Diego or Tijuana. The border also exists here in Denver, in Los Angeles and in Phoenix. It either expands or is shot full of holes. Cultures and languages mutually influence each other. The U.S. is indeed the final destination of many human migrations, the result of multiple factors like unemployment, overpopulation and especially the enormous economic disparity between North and South.

I asked my father who it was and he said, “That’s my mother,” and then it dawned on me, that I could never know my grandmother as young woman, and I had never put much thought into her being young.

Daughter of artist Betye Saar who is known for assemblage artworks, Saar earned a B.A. in studio art and art history at Scripps College in Claremont, CA, where she studied with noted Dr. Samella Lewis and completed a thesis on Southern African American Folk Art. She also earned an M.F.A. from the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. Compton Nocturne presents a shadowy blue image of a nude woman laying horizontally with a bottle tree growing out of her head in the place of hair. The image alludes to Saar’s Caribbean and African ancestry and folk traditions in which the bottle tree is used to ward off unwanted spirits or people. Saar’s lithograph is a visual adaptation of a mixed media sculpture by the same name created in 1999. She displays her subject as culture-bearing woman, rather than an eroticized object of desire. -Tricia Sackor, Class of 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Alison Saar", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/15-G-3736.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/15-G-3736.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/15-G-3736.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/15-G-3736.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "5232", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 947, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/947", "Disp_Access_No" : "13-G-3561", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2013", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2013", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2013", "Disp_Title" : "Our True History", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Ernesto Yerena", "Sort_Artist" : "Yerena, Ernesto", "Disp_Dimen" : "23 x 17 in.

The original image of the Virgin was rendered with an iconography completely understood by Mesoamericans. She wore the sash of pregnancy, while standing in front of a penetrating light, symbolic of the Aztec sun god Tonatiuh. Even though this event happened almost five centuries ago, the Virgin of Guadalupe is very much a contemporary issue, a manifestation of the modern embodiment of the mestizaje, hybridization. <BR/><BR/>In my interpretation, the young native woman with opened eyes confronts the viewer, with a white dove flying out of her exposed heart. The dove signifies the Holy Spirit, or the power of the Aztec creator, Teotl. The exposed heart is suggestive of the sacrificed hearts worn as a necklace by the indigenous earth goddess, Coatlicue. The Virgin wears a pink dress with designs indicative of the pictographs of the ancient Mexican codices. The design represents mountains which in Mesoamerican culture were associated with sacred caves, believed to be the birthplaces of the sun, moon, gods, goddesses and human beings. In the Virgin’s eyes are reflective images of the three witnesses present when Juan Diego opened his shawl to reveal the miraculous image of the Virgin. In my rendition, the Virgin wears her hair in braids like an indigenous young woman, rather than in her usual long hair style. She also wears a turquoise veil covering her head and shoulders. Instead of the stars displayed on the Virgin of Guadalupe’s veil, this image has indigenous symbols of the eye of God, water, movement, and pregnancy. The two colors of pink and turquoise of the dress and veil are the sacred colors of ancient Mexico.<BR/><BR/>— Santa C.

The bark is steamed, soaked and pressed until it is dried and ready to be separated into sheets. Washi paper has a lot of texture, coming from the fibers of the bark. Brayer was honored for her washi paperworks celebrating traditional Japanese culture, with an exhibition at an ancient Heian Temple in 1992.

We find it important for Latinos to raise our voice and be heard in the midst of an all-out war against our communities and communities of color throughout the US. Therefore we put together several workshops at the conference to share tactics and strategies on how to better protect our communities.

Along with a group of Cultural Workers, we gathered in the offices of the CIW to generate together with the community flags, graphics, stencils, banners, arm bands and papier-mâché statues as visual support. The Coalition was getting ready to embark on a 200 mile march from Fort Myers to Lakeland, Florida, that would last for two weeks. In March of this same year Justseeds was invited to participate in the Southern Graphics International Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We created a collective installation that we named Uprisings: Images of Labor, a direct reference to the struggles that the state of Wisconsin has experienced in the recent years. Each graphic worker and artist in Justseeds produced a print or two as part of the install. This image is the fruit of the collaboration with the CIW. The image is of a Farmworker and in specific an immigrant farmworker in the tomato fields of Florida, and in her bucket she carries a new day for farmworkers that is being constructed through organizing.<BR/><BR/></SPAN>— Mazatl <SPAN STYLE="font-family:'Times New Roman';font-size:12pt"><BR/></SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Mazatl", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/14-G-3643.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/14-G-3643.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/14-G-3643.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/14-G-3643.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2866", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 1043, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/1043", "Disp_Access_No" : "14-G-3645", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2013", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2013", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2013", "Disp_Title" : "Aurora", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Mazatl", "Sort_Artist" : "Mazatl", "Disp_Dimen" : "31 x 15 1/2 in.

The figure is a Carpas or vaudevillian performer that travels throughout the train yards of Mexico and Texas. The Carpas refer to the tents the performers used to stage their small-scale circus acts, such as trapeze, tightrope, dancing, and animal acts. The comical performances were satirical as well as socially and politically charged.<BR/><BR/>The print was created at the Brandywine Workshop during the time Transcendental Train Yard suite was initially being created at the Coronado Studio in Austin, Texas. Norma E. Cantú’s contribution to this collaboration was a poem based on a childhood song “RR con RR cigarro” that becomes a reflection of time and personal journey.<BR/><SPAN STYLE="font-weight:bold"><BR/></SPAN>— Marta Sanchez<BR/><BR/><SPAN STYLE="font-size:10pt"><BR/>R con R cigarro, R con R barril <BR/>Que recio corren los carros, los carros del ferrocarril<BR/>Waiting for trains, lives come to lives, trains follow tracks <BR/>leading to ends and beginnings<BR/>We come and go from here to there and from there to here<BR/>We know life as a railroad track leading to ends and beginnings<BR/>R con R cigarro, R con R barril <BR/>Que recio corren los carros, los carros del ferrocarril <BR/>Coming and going<BR/>La vida es un tren y los pasajeros viajan siguiendo su destino<BR/>Camarón que se duerme se lo lleva la corriente<BR/>The engine hums a lullaby, the reassuring whistle in the night <BR/>R con R cigarro, R con R barril <BR/>Que recio corren los carros, los carros del ferrocarril<BR/><BR/>— Norma E.

The original artwork was temporarily installed in the Courtyard Rose Compass in Philadelphia’s City Hall and highlighted in the city-wide Open Source project in October 2015.<BR/><BR/>"<SPAN STYLE="font-style:italic">Eres Mi Tod</SPAN>o" are words written by Maria's husband who is currently incarcerated and in the process of deportation. After being deported from Philadelphia, he attempted to cross the border again to be reunited with his family. He was caught by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Texas and now has 6 months left to his three year jail sentence in California. Once his sentence is over, he will be sent back to Mexico. Maria continues to live in Philadelphia with her five children. She speaks about the difficulty of deciding whether to stay or to leave for Mexico to be reunited with her husband. <BR/><BR/>In preparation for this project, I worked with undocumented youth and families in partnership with Juntos, a Latino immigrant community-led organization fighting for human rights as immigrants, parents, youth, and workers. I collected audio stories from undocumented families that reveal how their lives changed before and after deportation. <BR/><BR/>My project reflects the stories of immigrant families that have found Philadelphia to be a safe place to provide a better future for their children. Very much like the Irish, Jewish, and Italian immigrants that made their way to the city, these families see this new home as a place of progress and safe haven, where their children will grow to be the next generation of Philadelphians (like myself, a child of immigrants) that will contribute to the livelihood and fabric of this city. Philadelphia is a sanctuary for immigrants and honoring their contributions to the growth of the city is crucial especially during the current national anti-immigrant climate. For these reasons, this project is important because it offers a platform to tell the stories of our undocumented immigrant communities that are often unheard in our city.<BR/><BR/>—Michelle Angela Ortiz<SPAN STYLE="font-family:'Times New Roman';font-size:12pt"><BR/></SPAN><SPAN STYLE="font-family:'Segoe UI'"><BR/></SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Michelle Angela Ortiz", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/16-G-3751.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/16-G-3751.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/16-G-3751.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/16-G-3751.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "5784", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 8099, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/8099", "Disp_Access_No" : "16-G-4989", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2005", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2005", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2005", "Disp_Title" : "The Gates (Project for Central Park, New York City)", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Christo", "Sort_Artist" : "Christo", "Disp_Dimen" : "11 x 8 1/2 in.

Brandywine is a major source of opportunity for artists of all ages and backgrounds, especially artists of color, and is recognized internationally for its high standards of excellence and innovation. Edmunds’ lithograph, 200 Yrs, celebrates the progression of African Americans in America. The outline of a slave ship in the lower left alludes to the Slave Act of 1808, which marked early efforts to abolish the slave trade in the U.S. On the lower right a portrait of Martin Luther King Jr. represents the fight towards civil equality for African Americans. Edmunds’ print is dated 2008, the 200th anniversary of the Slave Act, and celebrates a new era in American history, with the election of Barack Obama as the first black president of the U.S. The print also features the names of African American heroes, slaves, soldiers, abolitionists, civil rights leaders, politicians, and educators, including Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington and Fredrick Douglass. -Tricia Sackor, Class 2017 Curatorial Intern ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Allan L.
