Just Another Poster? Chicano Graphic Arts in California explores the critical role posters and other graphic arts have played in the Chicano struggle for self-determination in California.
This is one of the many projects that focus on what has been called the Chicano poster movement or explore the inextricable
ties between the history of Chicano cultural production and the Chicano civil rights movement.
¿Just Another Poster? Chicano Graphic Arts in California was a major interpretive interdisciplinary traveling exhibition on Chicano graphic art in California that was developed between
1993-1999, launched in 2000 and toured nationally through 2003. The exhibition was a comprehensive exploration of the critical
role posters and other graphic materials played in the Chicano struggle for self-determination. The project’s origins are
attributed to University Librarian Joseph A. Boissé’s desire to produce a full-color volume of silkscreen art from collections
in the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives.
