Description
The Malaquias Montoya Collection contains silkscreen posters donated from the artist and family members. The posters are divided into three groups Premeditated: Meditations on Capital Punishment, La Raza Graphic Center, and Miscellaneous.
Background
Malaquias Montoya was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and raised in the San Joaquin Valley of California. He was brought up in a family of seven children by parents who could not read or write either Spanish or English. The three oldest children never went beyond a seventh grade education, as the entire family had to work as farm laborers for their survival. His father and mother were divorced when he was ten, and his mother continued to work in the fields to support the four children still remaining at home so they could pursue their education. Montoya graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1969.
