Collection is composed of five archival prints created by Sacramento-based artist and activist Xico González. The prints were created for marches, actions, and demonstrations related to social justice from 2020 to 2022.
Xico González was born in 1975 in Los Angeles, California. He went on to be an educator, curator, interdisciplinary artist, published poet, and political and cultural activista/organizer based in Sacramento, California. He received a Master of Arts in Spanish from Sacramento State University, and a Master of Fine Arts in Art Studio from the University of California, Davis. González has exhibited widely since the late 1990s and is known for his politically charged posters and his revoltoso poetry. His work is archived at the Sacramento Public Library, Sacramento State University, San José State University, the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, amongst other public and private collections. He has also exhibited internationally in Argentina and China. González has taught Spanish and Art Studio at the Met Sacramento High School wherein social justice, cultural awareness, and community engagement in and out of the classroom are part of his praxis.
