 The McNay Museum Presents

September 25, 2012 | January 27, 2013

This survey of Mexican American and Latino printmakers chronicles the late 1960s at the outset of the Chicano Movement to the confident expressions of the 2000s. Estampas de la Raza introduces recent gifts to the McNay from San Antonio collectors Harriett and Ricardo Romo. More than 60 prints by 44 artists reveal the richness of a mixed cultural heritage, with depictions of Frida Kahlo, lowriders, the Statue of Liberty, tattoos, and the Virgin of Guadalupe. Organized thematically in five sections, both the catalogue and the exhibition focus on aspects of the Latino experience in the United States: the identity of individuals striving to define themselves; the Chicano Movement’s struggle to achieve economic, political, and personal equality; tradition, memory, and culture in the everyday lives of Latinos; icons that serve as guideposts; and other voices revealing the complex and ever-changing directions Latinos choose. Many images are larger than life, serving up a colorful, visual feast.

Harriett and Ricardo Romo began acquiring art while teaching in Southern California at the height of the Chicano Movement in the late 1960s. As educators, they saw collecting as a means of supporting the artists as well as the movement’s goal of equal educational opportunity in Los Angeles’s school system. Intensely involved with Self Help Graphics & Art, a nexus of Chicano culture in East LA, the Romos bought many prints from the renowned collaborative print shop. After their return to Texas, they continued supporting Latino artists and became patrons of another highly important print shop, Coronado Studio in Austin.

Gifts since 2008 from Harriett Romo, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Ricardo Romo, UTSA’s president, now constitute one of the largest donations in the history of the McNay’s print collection, at present totaling 200 works that survey the best Chicano and Latino prints produced in Southern California and Texas in the last four decades. This exhibition celebrates the Romos’ generosity and the unique character, diversity, and richness these images bring to the museum’s American print collection.

Estampas de la Raza:

   Contemporary Prints from the Romo Collection”

Billed as “the most comprehensive survey of the contributions of Latino artists of post-1960 American printmaking to date,” the McNay’s “Estampas de la Raza: Contemporary Prints from the Romo Collection” comprises more than 60 prints chronicling the Latino experience in the U.S. Drawing from the generous gifts of collectors Ricardo and Harriet Romo, the exhibition covers five distinct themes: “Identity,” “Struggle,” “Tradition, Culture, Memory,” “Icons,” and “Other Voices.” With Warholesque portarits of legends paired with irreverent remixes of Mickey Mouse and the Sun Maid Raisin girl, pop art emerges as a stylistic connecting thread. John A. Hernandez, Leticia V. Huerta, Juan Miguel Ramos, Alex Rubio, Vincent Valdez, Joe Lopez, Michael Menchaca, Rolando Briseño, and Celina Hinojosa do San Antonio proud in a group of 44 artists. sacurrent.com


While much attention has been paid to Chicano painting, Estampas de la Raza: Contemporary Prints from the Romo Collection is one of the first books about the vibrant and exciting prints created by American artists of Mexican and Latino heritage in the decades following the Chicano movement of the 1970s. Drawn entirely from a major gift to the McNay Art Museum by Drs. Harriett and Ricardo Romo, among the most important collectors of this material in the United States, Estampas de la Raza is a significant document of the development of printmaking in the Latino community and a stunning survey of many of the best prints to emerge from such influential print shops as Self Help Graphics, Modern Multiples, and Coronado Studios. The book includes more than sixty prints by nearly fifty artists with full biographies of each artist and a discussion of the artists’ approaches to representing the Mexican American, Latino, and Chicano experience. That experience is all here in vivid colors and bold forms—cultural icons such as the Virgen de Guadalupe, Frida Kahlo, and César Chávez; pachucos, vatos, and chicas; the sociopolitical struggles of the Chicano movement and the forging of a new cultural identity; as well as zoot suits, lowriders, Tejano music, tacos, and tattoos. The book is as much a celebration of the rich Latino culture as it is a chronicle of one of the most fascinating, and overlooked, aspects of contemporary American art—the great contribution of Chicano and Latino artists to the American printmaking tradition. utpress.utexas.edu

                                                          The Best of Serigraphy in the Heart of Texas!


Coronado Studio And the Serie Project    

Andaba Perdida   (Serigraph) Product of an Artist in Residency Program © 2003   Coronado Studio was born in 1991, when Sam Coronado rented his own personal painting space at 1504C E 5th Street. A trip in 1992 to Self-Help Graphics, a community art center in Los Angeles, inspired Coronado to create a printmaking studio.

There are very few printmaking studios in the United States, and he believed that converting his space to one devoted to serigraph (silk screen) printmaking would make the technique more readily available to artists. Hoping to attract more artists, and especially Latina/o artists, to the medium, Coronado founded the
Serie Project, and began inviting artists to come to Coronado Studio to create editions of serigraph prints.

Coronado Studio stood next to Café Mundi from 1991 to 1998. In 1998, Coronado Studio moved to its present location at 901 Vargas, in East Austin’s Montopolis neighborhood. You can contact The Serie Project at:
