fine art postor featuring a work by Alfrdo Arreguin

produced by the Hispanic Research Center, Arizona State University

This high-quality art poster features Alfredo Arreguin’s painting THE RETURN TO AZTLAN (2006), which is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington. D.C., and has been on display in the American Search for Justice exhibit at the National Portrait Galley.

THE RETURN TO AZTLAN reflects the spirit of the ASU Hispanic Research Center’s 2010 Good Bandits, Warror Women, and Revolutionaries “happening” held Novemeber 18 through 20. It presents the artist’s concept of a Mexican and Latin American family tree that spans some 200 years. At the top left is Miguel Hidalgo and top right is Jose Maria Morelos. The two were patriotic Mexican priests who died for the cause of Mexican independence from Spain. Between the two liberator-priests is the icon of the United Farm Workers of American, an eagle stylized in the form of an inverted Mesoamerican pyramid.

The theme of social justic continues through the other faces on the poster: Cesar Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers of America, AFL-CIO (UFW), Emiliano Zapata, one of the most recognizable figures of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, and Dolores Huerta, a cofounder and current vice president of the UFW. The poster is a faithful reproduction of the original painting and is printed on heavy art stock.

Alfredo Arreguin was born in 1935 in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico. He has lived in Seattle for decades and is recognized throughout the world as an artist of profound originality and importance.
