Guadalupe Posada was a Mexican cartoonist, illustrator and printmaker
whose work has influenced generations of Latin American artists.
Posada’s best known engravings are his calaveras, which often assume
various costumes, such as the Calavera de la Catrina, the “Skull of the
Female Dandy”, which was meant to satirize the life of the upper
classes. Since his death his images have become associated with the
Mexican holiday Dia de Muertos, the “Day of the Dead”.
Sandusky Cultural Center has invited a diverse group of current artists to honor the 100th anniversary of Posada’s death in 1913 with an exhibit celebrating his influence.
Tribute to Jose Guadalupe Posada opens with a public reception on Sunday, October 20 at 1:00 p.m.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
