UCSB Library (Gallery, 1st floor)
Rodriguez’s bold posters and digital art deal with social issues, such as immigration, globalization, economic injustice, patriarchy, racism, and war. Whether handmade or printed en masse, her prints portray the impact people can have on their conditions. Rodriguez has founded several organizations dedicated to training communities and artists in the use of political graphics, murals, and the Internet for social change. She lectures widely on the use of art in civic engagement and the work of artists who, like herself, are bridging the community and museum, the local and international.
Posters in this exhibit were on loan from the artist.
