This work is part of the portfolio “La Huella: Homage to Master Printmakers” featuring Sam Z. Coronado, an important figure in the Latino printmaking community, who founded The SERIE Project, a nonprofit organization located in Austin Texas, whose mission is to promote Latino art through screen printing. The SERIE Project has hosted more than 300 artist residencies and helped promote the careers of many art historians, curators, and printmakers within the USA and abroad for over 20 years. Amongst other achievements, Sam co-founded the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin Texas. His personal oeuvre and work through the SERIE Project earned him several lifetime achievement awards from the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, the Austin Visual Arts Association, and the Mexic-Arte Museum. He sadly passed away in 2013 much ahead of his time, but left an enormous legacy within the Latino community.
