In conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of the death of revolutionary Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913), six contemporary printmakers are being featured at the Museum of Printing History, demonstrating the lasting influence of this legendary printer. Key elements that link their work to Posada are a gritty realism and raw depiction of humanity, political-social satire and themes of vanitas and an evocation of street scenes and popular culture as well as a wide appeal of Posada imagery, including the calaveras and katrinas.

Artists featured are Artemio Rodriguez, The Amazing Hancock Brothers, Tom Huck, Dennis Mc Nett and Carlos Hernandez.

Messengers of the Posada Influence is taking place in conjunction with Calaveras Mexicanas: The Art and Influence of José Guadalupe Posada happening at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
