I designed the poster Juárez: Once a City, Now a Statistic, in 2010 originally for Peace of Art: Design for Change. This exhibit presented posters of social protest designed by professional and student designers to create awareness of the then-situation of violence in Ciudad, Juárez, Mexico to give a face to the violence and help people understand that the violence changes people’s lives. It was a display of Peace and/or protest on both sides of the border. More importantly, Peace of Art raised funds that aided Juárez victims and their families.
This poster, along with my other design Juárez (Stop the Violence) were later named finalists in the 2010 Eleventh International Biennial of the Poster in Mexico City, Mexico and were on display at the Museo Franz Mayer in Mexico City. I later updated the poster’s statistics for its display at the 2011 Victory for Tyler: Works on Paper and Posters Juried Exhibition, Juried by Luba Lukova, at the Crane Arts Center for Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.
