Solidaridad con las Costureras de Guatemala [Solidarity with Guatemalan Seamstresses].

Chicago: US/Guatemala Labor Education Project, (c. 1990s). Anderson, Marilyn. Lithographed poster. Printed in black and red, the image centers on a woman bent over a sewing machine. Above her flies a lushly feathered bird, and beneath her is printed the challenging question, “Was your shirt made by Guatemalan women earning $3 a day?” The U.S./Guatemala Labor Education Project was founded in 1987. Now known as the U.S. Labor Education in the Americas Project, the organization advocates for fundamental changes to U.S. trade policies and fights for worker justice in Latin America. The present poster’s stark juxtaposition of the bird’s freedom with the deliberate and necessary work of the seamstress evokes hope on behalf of the hopeless and the need to speak on behalf of the voiceless. Pinholes in corners, inconsequential crease to title area, else near fine. Framed. (24 1/2 by 18 in.). Item #30291
