Mexican printmaking and political discourse in Sun Valley

Christie Tirado and Sun Valley Museum of Art
Linocut print of Dolores, an essential worker in the Wood River Valley during the COVID-19 pandemic, created by printmaker Christie Tirado.

For generations, artists in Mexico have used printmaking as a way to share news and political opinions as well as to celebrate cultural traditions. The Sun Valley Museum of Art is opening a new exhibit on Friday called "The Mexican Graphic Tradition: Printmaking and the Political". Joining us are Courtney Gilbert, Sun Valley Museum of Art curator of visual arts and artist Christie Tirado.
