'José Guadalupe Posada: Legendary Printmaker Of Mexico'

This exhibition features artworks from one of Mexico’s most celebrated artists, José Guadalupe Posada.

Posada’s satirical skeletons (calaveras) are instantly recognizable. His artwork lampooned politicians, recorded images from the Mexican Revolution, and inspired artists to use their art for social causes. Posada’s iconic imagery also adorned concert tickets for the Grateful Dead and his calaveras are emblematic of Día de los Muertos imagery.

Special thanks to Landau Traveling Exhibitions, the Catalina Island Museum, and the Posada Art Foundation.
