"Solidarity Farmworkers, Tierra y Libertad"

Title

"Solidarity Farmworkers, Tierra y Libertad"

Subject

United Farm Workers, Emiliano Zapata

Description

This poster utilizes a printed artwork of Mexican artist, Leopoldo Mendez, done under the printing collective El Taller de Gráfica Popular in Mexico. The original image by Mendez is placed on a poster with the slogan "Solidarity Farmworkers" and the UFW eagle. This poster is emblematic of the influence of not only the Mexican iconography, but also the Mexican artwork produced following the Mexican Revolution. Such iconography and formal style was influential to the rising Chicano art movement at the time as well. The image of Zapata helped artists express their revolutionary cultural heritage, while the graphic formal style helped express their social and political cause.
