About the artists

Marsha Shaw
The process of printmaking is important because it is through attention to planning, cutting, and printing that I come to understand these relationships. Layers of wallpaper patterns, insects, birds and human anatomy, create a palimpsest in which some images are obscured, while others remain intact.
In “Current” Marsha show a series of new collages on Wood.

Adrian Arias
I believe in the transformation of reality, my religion is the poetry, I believe in the cells, molecules, in the hard work, in the ideas, I believe in the creative power of the community, the power generated for a group of people creating together, and also in the pleasure to work alone, facing my own demons, listening the interior of myself.
In “Current” I show a series of mixed media drawings sometimes worked at live in concerts of my friends (Locura, Rupa and the April Fishes) and other that takes me long days of preparation and creative crisis. The theme is the impulse of life, and how dreams are a very important space to créate. Most of the drawings are based in dreams that I had.

Mission Grafica Prints Collection
Within our collection, we have cataloged more than 4,000 posters. This important collection will become one of the most important collections of Latino / Chicano posters in the country. With this archive, the MCCLA possess an important artistic tool to educate the general public and the Latino community about its artists and their print making. The preservation of this body of work is vital to our rich Chicano and Latino cultural history, and it serves as a powerful monument not only to our culture but to the artistic talents of our proud community.
