La Voz de la Mujer

This piece was made for the first ever sign painting exhibition at the Chicago Art Department featuring all women. Ladies from all over the world were celebrated for their craftsmanship in traditional sign painting technique. My piece was inspired by the first ever anarcha-feminist group and newpaper, La Voz de la Mujer (The Voice of Women). Based in Buenos Aires Argentina in 1890. These women fought for women's rights and the liberation of the working class, forming some of the very first labor unions. 


I hand lettered a tee with the newspaper's slogan "No Gods, No Bosses, No Husbands" to accompany the piece. T-shirts were sold at the event and all proceeds were donated to designing a campaign for The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression.
