My main focus on this research was to focus on Representation, I've noticed that I personally didn't know any people of color printmakers. Luckily ASU's Hayden library has a Chicano research department and special collections of books that I had as a great resource. My personal journey of seeking out people of color in the printmaking community has always been somewhat of a struggle for me. So to realize that ASU has a large collection of prints surrounding the Chicano culture and an array of topics like discussing the social issues surrounding immigration was more than inspirational and powerful to physically touch and see these prints in person.
Arizona State University has an amazing collection of printmaking prints throughout campus. One of the collections I've decided to research was created by Culturestrike called Migration Now which is located at Hayden Library in Tempe on the Luhrs Room which is on the fourth floor.
Migration Now portfolio consists of 37 prints that surround the social issues that affect migration. The limited edition portfolio consists of 140 portfolios and was created in 2012. The political posters are 12x18 in size and include different printmaking styles like relief, letterpress and screen printing.
Id hate to copy and paste but if you're looking for printmakers of color here are the contributing artists: Lalo Alcaraz -- Santiago Armengod -- Felipe Baeza -- Jesus Barraza -- Shaun Slifer & Janay Brun -- Kevin Caplicki -- Melanie Cervantes -- Irina Crisis -- Raoul Deal -- Emory Douglas -- El Mac -- Molly Fair -- Thea Gahr -- Art Hazelwood -- Ray Hernandez -- Nicolas Lampert -- Josh MacPhee -- Oscar Magallanes -- Fernando Marti -- Colin Matthes -- Cesar Maxit -- Dylan Miner -- Claude Moller -- Oree Originol -- Diane Ovalle -- Roger Peet -- Jesse Purcell -- Favianna Rodriguez -- Erik Ruin -- Julio Salgado -- Meredith Stern -- Mary Trem onte -- Kristine Virsis -- Pete Yahnke Railand -- Imin Yeh -- Ernesto Yerena Montejano -- Bec Young
