Aguila Inc. Presents in Concert Mariachi Nuevo Aztlán and El Ballet Folklórico Tepatitlán

Notes: A very scarce poster for Cinco de Mayo festivities in Portland, Oregon. While there were some 50,000 Latinos in Oregon in the mid-1970s, artifacts of Latinx cultural events from this time period are uncommon and decorative ones are very scarce.

Not much is known about the artists, but they produced posters for Colegio César Chávez, an independent Chicano-themed college in Central Oregon that operated in the 1970s. They variously spelled their names on their posters Marriquez and Manriquez.

Colorful screenprint (serigraph): 14-1/4 by 22-1/2 inches.

Edition + Condition: Near fine, with a bit of ink staining from the printing process in one margin. Signed in the plate.

Publication: Portland, OR: Aguila Inc., 1977.
