Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

The 21st Congressional District is a pretty expansive one. As I was researching its history, I was reminded of Cesar Chavez' and Dolores Huerta's inspiring work in Delano, CA, which led to the formation of the United Farm Workers. While reading, I came across the phrase "el pueblo que pierde su historia pierde su destino" (the community that loses its history, loses its destiny) and knew that it was important to remind voters of the spirit of protest and resistance that brought historic changes to the district in the past. - Christopher Wachter
