Reclaiming Language & Culture

mixed media drawing @1992

In 1992 the Mexican Museum of San Francisco, CA commissioned Emmanuel to create a piece for the traveling exhibit Chicano Codices, Encountering Art of the Americas.

Twenty-five Chicano artists were selected to create a contemporary response to the

Mesoamerican Codices -  a commemoration of 500 years of Indigenous Resistance (1492 -1992).

Drawing from his Lipan Apache and Chicano heritage,

Reclaiming Language & Culture is representative of honoring and

acknowledging our ancestral lineage. This piece is in the private collection of

the Mexican Fine Arts & Museum, Chicago, IL.

War is a Blind Patriot!

In 1991 the Mexican Museum and the Galleria La Raza called upon thirty chicano artists to respond to the Gulf War. This print was created in one day at the museum’s location at Fort Mason. War is a Blind Patriot, speaks of how sometimes patriotism can be used in the wrong way to support unjust wars. The San Francisco Bay Guardian published this image as a center fold poster and as a result the poster could be seen displayed through out the San Francisco Bay Area.
