This Christmas poster focuses on the figure of St. Michael the Archangel, militantly brandishing his sword surrounded by Puerto Rican cultural emblems: traditional musical instruments and the Three Kings. Lacking any text other than the year indicates that this is an artist proof [A/P]. Artists would purposefully produce a small numbers of posters without any message to have a print that focused just on the design. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)

Scope and Contents:
This silkscreen mimics the look of linoleum, since the artist creates the illusion of texture on the otherwise flat surface typically produced by the silk-screening process. The figure of the mother and child as well as in the man the foreground connects this poster with the tradition of carving religious figures, santos. The film, an adaptation of Rene Marques's short story Los Casos de Ignacio y Santiago (The Stories of Ignacio and Santiago), addresses the absence of community participation and the responsibilities and rights as citizens.

Scope and Contents:
This poster advertising the film "Juan Sin Seso" ("Brainless John"), has a minimalist design, relying on text to form the illustration. The image presents a profile of a man's head with a hollow space instead of a brain, crammed with the words "propaganda" and "si" ("yes"). Ironically, the film utilizes elements of propaganda to argue against it. This film was shown in 1960 in Melbourne, Venice, and Edinburgh Film Festivals. (Based on exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
