        Community health in the barrio         23x17.5        

serigraph Within an open mouth of announcement, the Fists of material resistance grasp symbols of ancient and modern medicine above the community's heart, and arch transformed into the spiritual hands of collective power, upholding the crown of health above the dawn. Recalling the great Mexican muralists, the design integrates references to changing perspectives in health care, community development, and political practice -- offering a synoptic advertisement for the clinic, and a glimpse of the artist, legendary as a teacher and as master of the overnight rush job, here in his formal power.
