Please join us for a visual exploration of dynamic contemporary artist prints, posters, and drawings from the Library’s collections. Hispanic Reading Room reference librarian Maria Daniela Thurber and Prints & Photographs Division curator Katherine Blood will feature the newly-digitized and catalogued Mission Gráfica/La Raza Graphics collection and artist prints and posters from such collectives as Dignidad Rebelde and Self Help Graphics. They will also share works created by a variety of artists including Barbara Carrasco, Enrique Chagoya, Rupert Garcia, Ester Hernandez, Michael Menchaca, Victor Ochoa, Artemio Rodriguez, Favianna Rodriguez, Jessica Sabogal, Mario Torero, and Ernesto Yerena Montejano. Search techniques will be highlighted along with related online resources including research guides and the Library’s La Biblioteca podcast.
Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov.
