UCSB Acquires Major Chicano/Latino Graphic Art Collections

Mission Grafica Collection, MCCLAThe UCSB Library has acquired two art collections — The Mission Gráfica and La Raza Graphics — from the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (MCCLA) in San Francisco comprised of roughly 2,000 historical silkscreen print posters from the Chicano / Latino Visual Arts movement plus organizational records from the MCCLA. These will be housed in the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives (CEMA), a division of UCSB Library’s Special Research Collections and will nearly double CEMA’s already extensive holdings of Chicano/Latino graphic prints. Once the items in the new collections have been processed and catalogued, they will be available to scholars and the public for research and viewing.

Among the artists featured in the collections are Rene Castro, Enrique Chagoya, Domitilia Dominguez, Juan Fuentes, Pete Gallegos, Carmen Lomas Garza, Ester Hernandez, Linda Lucero, Ralph Maradiaga, Oscar Melara, Consuelo Mendez, Malaquias Montoya, Irene Perez, Michael Rios, Jos Sances and Hebert Siguenza.
