Arte Sin Fronteras: Prints from the Self Help Graphics Studio focuses on a gift from Dr. Gilberto Cárdenas, a leading collector of Latinx art, of prints produced at Self Help Graphics and Art. Located in East Los Angeles, this printmaking workshop and cultural institution has been a mainstay in the city’s arts community since 1972. Sister Karen Boccalero and two Mexican-born artists, muralist Carlos Bueno, and photographer Antonio Ibáñez, founded the institution to support the local Mexican American community through art classes and cultural experiences. They provided printmaking training and studio spaces for artists and organized an annual celebration of the Dia de los Muertos.
