Description

From a collaborative portfolio of ten linocuts titled A Donde Iran los Muertos? (Where Will the Dead Go?): A Conversation in Prints Between Aztlan and Anahuac. Five images were printed by Gonzalez, five were printed by artist Sergio Sanchez Santamaria.

In the background of this print is the marquee for Self Help Graphics & Art, a printaking organization founded in 1973 for Latin American/Chicano artists and one of the places where the artist has taught and worked throughout his career. The title of this piece, "Dia de los Dead," is a nod to the two sides of his upbringing, being an American citizen who was partially brought up in Mexico.
