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.

"From the Clouds," directed by Jack Delano, was the first documentary produced by the Division of Community Education. It featured modern and experimental audio techniques. With aerial shots of the island showing its topography, educationally, the film inserted Puerto Rico within a world-wide historical context and highlighted its agricultural and social landscapes. This poster is the earliest DIVEDCO poster on display. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)

Scope and Contents:
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.)
