Artists chose diverse media and artistic styles to share their mnemonic ideas. Most chose the boldness of black/white linocut and woodcut prints and others chose intaglio media to create highly detailed and colorful images. Stylistically most works use a figure-based narrative while few works incorporate abstract and cubist elements.
We were able to materialize this project thanks to the gracious support of two individuals: Gilberto Cardenas, director of the Notre Dame University’s Latino Institute at South Bend, IN and Gary Keller Director of the Hispanic Research Center at Arizona State University at Tempe, AZ. They provided some of the seed financial support to acquire the acid free paper and the cover the cost of shipping the portfolios.
