Art, Rock & Revolution

Illustration of Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata. He is riding a horse and carrying a rifle.In a political environment of xenophobia and marginalization of transnational family systems and immigrants, Art, Rock & Revolution seeks to foster multicultural appreciation and understanding by creating an original work of historical fiction presented in the popular format of a graphic novel. The graphic novel will be distributed for free to underserved Mexican and North American youth with an interactive curriculum for the classroom.

Two accomplished underground artists bring their work to underserved youth in Oakland, CA and Morelos Mexico, creating enduring cross-border friendships with a graphic novel and curriculum about a punk band, Family, and the hero of revolutionary Mexico.
